One of the great oldies in the suspenseful Noir era of film. Joan Crawford recieved the Best Actress Oscar for her surprisingly good portrayal of the title character. She is caught in a dilemma typical of the movies, scorned wife has unhappy daughter, her 1st husband has been suspected of murdering her 2nd husband, and she must cope with all the trials in her life with perseverance and dignity. It's horribly good. Supporting actors also good, especially Ann Blyth as her teenage daughter. Directed by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), the film will lure you and keep you in.
Many credit Michael Curtiz's "Casablanca" as his masterpiece (as they should) but "Mildred Pierce" comes pretty close as the runner up along with "Yankee Doodle Dandy." A great film noir about a hardworking mother who spoils her daughter rotten and unintentionally creates a monster out of her, Joan Crawford does a stupendous job playing the hard working mom. The film garnered an Academy Award for Best Actress and a nomination for best picture. A great film. Highly recommend it!!!
If you are looking for a good classic movie, look no further! Mildred Pierce is probably the BEST classic movie you will EVER. Joan Crawford is one of the BEST actresses EVER. And this is one of her Oscar winning films. She really deserved it.
I decided to buy this movie because I kind of have an obsession with Joan Crawford. She has a very interesting past. There is more to her than Mommie Dearest. And if you buy Mildred Pierce you will see that because there is also a documentary on Joan Crawford on the other side of the DVD.
This is a MUST BUY for the classic movie lovers!
Mildred Pierce (Joan Crawford), becomes a successful business woman to finance her daughters' (Ann Blyth) high spending lifestyle. The thankless daughter runs Mildred though an emotional and financial roller coaster which includes attempting to take Mildreds love interest. This is a satisfying moive where in the end you'll be glad that the daughter (Ann Blyth) gets what she deservers.
This movie is one of the few that has stayed with me after watching it. It's easy to see why Joan Crawford won an Oscar for this.
this is one of my all time favorites. joan is at her best with the squared shoulders and strong eyebrows. she struggles as mildred to be a good mother and provide no matter what. even as her evil eldest daughter selfishly takes advantage. just awesome '40s storytelling. it's also fun to see old los angeles in the background. a must for any classic movie lover and especially a joan crawford fan.
