Directed by Otto Preminger
Joan Crawford (Mildred Pierce), Dana Andrews (Boomerang) and Henry Fonda (The Ox-Bow Incident) deliver dazzling performances in this highly polished and slick love triangle directed by the great Otto Preminger (Laura). Daisy Kenyon (Crawford) is a lovelorn commercial artist caught in a romantic triangle with two men - one she loves but cannot have and one whose love she cannot return. While in an emotionally draining love affair with married attorney Dan O'Mara (Andrews), who refuses to leave his wife, she meets returning army sergeant Peter Lapham (Fonda) - a decent and gentle man who instantly falls in love with her. Although she carries a torch for Dan, she knows Peter will give her the secure life she desires and she agrees to marry him. But when Dan divorces his wife, Daisy is suddenly torn between her obligations... and her passions. Featuring stunning black-and-white cinematography by legendary award-winning cinematographer Leon Shamroy (Leave Her to Heaven, The King and I, Cleopatra).
"The KL Studio Classics Blu-ray of Daisy Kenyon looked great on DVD, but it truly sparkles in HD, showing off the high Fox production values."
"Otto Preminger’s 1947 DAISY KENYON...is rightly considered one of Joan Crawford’s best postwar vehicles"
"One of the best and most controlled of the movies which Joan Crawford made during her career renaissance in the mid-to-late 1940s, Daisy Kenyon reads quite modern today with a definite lack of histrionics and a first-rate production on display."
