5 reasons to see A Woman's Face (1941)

1. Seeing The Awesomeness That Is Conrad Veidt dancing in a Swedish Conga Line.

2. Some very nice B&W cinematography (as you can tell from the pictures)

3. Impressive, yet subtle burn make-up, which comes with Joan Crawford's impressive, memorable performance as disfigured woman-turned-criminal-turned-nanny.

4. Melvyn Douglas' amicable and likable performance as a gifted plastic surgen who so happens  to specialize in burn victims.

5. Conrad Veidt (again). Seriously, who else could make the description of someone else as   "a dove, a tame cowing dove. soft and weak and full of love for her fellow men" sound so sinister?
