"Torch Song" A mid-century modern 'masterpiece'.

Just watched the Joan Crawford potboiler "Torch Song" on TCM. Made in 1952, the movie features Joan Crawford, but the real star of the movie is the remarkable mid century modern set design of Joan's Manhattan apartment. I found a blogger -- a kindred spirit -- who pays homage to the film, and the art director Preston Ames. He has some great screen captures and amusing commentary about the movie. If it ever comes up on TCM again it's a must see for any MCM enthusiast.

The same blogger did a similar examination of the set design for a number of other films. Well worth a look.
