In this episode, I talk about the 1945 film “Humoresque.” Joan Crawford plays a socialite tormented by her love for a younger man–played by John Garfield–who is a passionate violinist trying to break into the music world. Her money and connections help him find success, but her hard-drinking and intense desire lead to her own self-destruction. I adore this film. I talk about the music in it, how it looks at desire, and much more. As always, there are spoilers in this episode.
