Review – Berserk

Given the allegations about her family life, perhaps Joan Crawford deserved to end her career making movies like this. Here she plays the owner of a circus plagued by a series of deadly accidents. Most of the screen time is devoted to soap-opera-worthy shenanigans, many involving an awkward romance between our heroine and a substantially younger performer.

For the most part, however, this is just melodramatic and dull. See if desperate
