Joan Crawford: A Real Doll

The Tonner Doll Company, internationally renowned for its exquisite, award-winning collectible dolls, is currently accepting pre-orders for its new Joan Crawford collection.

The doll company is no stranger to Hollywood, previously releasing dolls with the incredible likeness of characters from Wizard of Oz, Gone With The Wind, Mary Poppins, Spider-Man, Pirates of the Caribbean and many other memorable films. The new collection features six different dolls, all based upon Joan Crawford’s likeness from well-known movie scenes.

From the press release issued by Tonner:

The Joan Crawford Collection showcases an exceptional assortment of original fashions inspired by some of her most well-known scenes. Fashion doll innovator Robert Tonner, CEO of the Tonner Doll Company, returns one of Hollywood’s greatest treasures to her ardent fans for the first time ever! Named one of the top ten “Greatest Female Stars of All Time” by the American Film Institute, Joan Crawford is sure to be named the Greatest Fashion Doll of All Time by fans and collectors everywhere. The new Joan Crawford Fashion Doll is accurately sculpted in an amazing likeness of the Academy Award winner herself, in cooperation with her family.

“I am very pleased to work with The Tonner Doll Company in creating the first ever, authorized Joan Crawford doll collection,” said Casey LaLonde, grandson of Ms. Crawford.  “Joan Crawford fans and doll collectors worldwide will be equally delighted with this high quality, life-like and collectible doll line.  Tonner’s attention to detail and features will make this a much sought after collection.”

Crawford appeared in over 80 films during her illustrious career, starring in unforgettable films like Grand Hotel (1932), The Women (1939), Mildred Pierce (1945), Humoresque (1946), and 1962’s Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? 

Tonner’s Joan Crawford collection will hit specialty retail store shelves later this year.
