Joan of Dark

To make it she's scratched and she's clawed
By apes she's been slapped at and pawed
Bought, bartered and sold,
Her heart's not of gold
No lady, Joan Bennett's a broad.

In the 1940s, Joan Bennett played a string of loose ladies and dark dames, and was a favorite of director Fritz Lang. Here she's a hooker in Lang's Scarlet Street, having her toenails done by milquetoast Edward G. Robinson. Read our earlier rhymes on Joan BennettImage source: Shadows and Satin
