Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role 1946
Plays Character That Is Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Sadie Thompson in Rain 1932
Character Is A Prostitute
Based on a short story by W. Somerset Maugham, Rain has been both a stage play and a film. For this screen adaptation the prostitution angle has been toned down. The plot centers around a group of passengers shipwrecked on an island. Joan Crawford plays a hooker while Walter Huston plays a preacher. Pretty soon these two clash on the island. As the preacher is determined to reform the prostitute by all means necessary.
