Joan Crawford at Pepsi Dedication in San Diego 1963

This film reel is titled “Pepsi Dedication.” It has a wonderful surprise in it—legendary actress Joan Crawford. Her fourth husband, Alfred Steele, was the chairman and CEO of PepsiCo. until his death in 1959. She was on the board of directors and traveled extensively for the company. Harold Keen spoke with Joan and he asked all the good questions. She is friendlier than one might expect and oh so refined and elegant. A Hollywood legend of the silver screen gracing the small screen on a TV 8 newscast in 1963. What a treat that we can see it now, 57 years later!

Music: Firefly Chris Haugen
