Contact the club organizer/president at: CrawfordTV@hotmail.com​​

Disclaimer: "The Joan Crawford Footage Club" is not operated by "The Concluding Chapter Of Crawford" or it's webmaster.
This club page is provided as a service by the website for Joan Crawford fans, and in the interest of continued research of Joan Crawford​​.
     All sales, pledges and communications regarding "The Joan Crawford Footage Club" is between that individual and the club's organizer,
​"Billie Cassin", who can be contacted at CrawfordTV@hotmail.com
The Club's Purpose:
     ​To discover, enjoy and celebrate newly discovered footage and audio of Joan Crawford.

How the Club Works:
     ​Upon the discovery of new footage/material, a picture and description of the footage will be posted.
​A club drive will then begin to raise the funds needed to obtain the material, plus an additional 10% fee which will be added to the “Joan Crawford Footage Bank”.
     During the pledge drive, club members can pledge whatever amount they wish for the footage.
​(Pledges will be sent via email to CrawfordTV@hotmail.com)

     Members may p​ledge whatever they can afford (i.e. $10-$1,000). When the item's cost is reached, the item will be sent to the pledgees.

​     Following the pledge drive, the footage will not be available again.
​For instance, it will not be listed for sale on eBay, uploaded to Youtube or distributed/shared in any other fashion. 

     *​If later club members want an item previously offered before they joined the club, they must contribute a set price to the “Joan Crawford Footage Bank” upon receipt of the non-disclosure confidentiality agreement.

How To Join:
     ​Members will fill out a legal non-disclosure confidentiality agreement which will be sent via email to the applying member.
​The agreement will be binding and explain the governance of footage distributed to you.

     ​All footage items will be marked with an onscreen "identifier" specific to each member.
​This helps guarantee the confidentiality agreement and to prevent bootlegging, YouTube posting, trading or any other kind of dissemination by club members. (See image below:)
What is the “Joan Crawford Footage Bank”?:
     ​It is a 10% monetary collection, like an origination fee, taken for each footage item being put into the club library for the first time.
​In short, it is a fund for fans to voluntarily contribute to that will then be used for the benefit of ALL Joan Crawford fans.
     ​The fund balance will be made public at all times on the club page and will serve 2 purposes:

1. It will be used to pay for Joan Crawford items for all fans to enjoy regardless of ability to pay and regardless of whether or not they are in the club.
​     These items will then have their exclusive premiere on "The Concluding Chapter of Crawford" website.

     ​It also allows fans to notify the club president of discoveries, who can then use the fund to obtain the item without the need for a pledge drive.

     The fund will also be used to pay for discoveries made by, and paid for, by other Crawford fans to premiere on the website without the need for a pledge drive. Because items discovered and paid for by this fund will be premiered publicly on the website, they fall outside of the non-disclosure confidentiality agreement of club members.

2. Funds will be used to pursue legal action against members who violate the non-disclosure confidentiality agreement signed by them.
​Proceeds from such legal actions would go into the fund after attorney fees.
Note: ​If you have no intention to sell, trade, post or disseminate the item, this aspect of the fund should not concern you.

     ​Once a footage item is posted and a member expresses an interest in it, the member can send an email to club president "Billie Cassin" at Crawfordtv@hotmail.com.
     The member will receive a non-disclosure confidentiality agreement to sign and return when the member makes a pledge.
​The pledge, only collected when the full amount has been reached, must be made by check or PayPal.
Note: ​The name and address on the account must match the name and address on the non-disclosure confidentiality agreement.


     ​An interview of Crawford at a Pepsi plant opening has been discovered. It cost the club president $1500 to transfer and process the footage.
​A full description of the footage, including it's length and quality (with screenshots) will be put on the club page along with a Pepsi bottle showing the progress of the pledges.
     ​The bottle would show $1500 plus $150 (10%) for the "footage bank" - for a total pledge drive of $1650.

     ​When that amount is reached and collected, the item will be sent to pledgees and $150 will go to the "footage bank" for future discoveries.
​All future club members can obtain the item through the club for a set contribution to the "footage bank".

Important note:
     ​Once a non-disclosure confidentiality agreement is on file, you do not have to do another one for each additional discovery. You are set for the duration of the club’s existence.​​
     (In addition to the "identifier" on the footage item, there will also be a hidden marker embedded in the footage on a single frame at a pre-determined time code unique to the club member and known only by the club president in the event that the screen "identifier" is altered or removed.)
