ITEM#: 10337380A potent mixture of melodrama and film noir, and one of the finest "women's films" of all time--featuring a standout performance by Joan Crawford.

Left with only Veda, Mildred determined to become successful in order to give her the best of everything -- and she succeeded brilliantly. But the harder Mildred worked, the more the patrician Veda despised her. Now the moment of truth has come: will Mildred once again sacrifice herself to protect her child... from being convicted of murder? Adapted from the novel by James M. Cain. Academy Award Nominations: 6, including Best Picture, Best (Adapted) Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress--Eve Arden and Ann Blyth. Academy Awards: Best Actress--Joan CrawFord.

I have been lookng for this movie for sometime. This is one of my all time favorite movies. Since I have received it, I have watched it 3 times this week. If you are a Crawford fan, this one should be in your library.Read More
Joan Crawford certainly earned her Oscar for this performance. It is far more than any soap opera or romance of recent years. As usual Director Michael Curtiz created a memorable film for the ages. Sixty years old? A hundred years from now I don't think it will get stale. And when I realize this was Ann Blyth's first film role, I am even more impressed. I just can't recommend Mildred Pierce more highly.Read More
