Mildred Pierce

Rated NR 109 minutes 1945

The archetypal Joan Crawford movie, with Joan as a housewife turned waitress who finds success in business but only anguish with her bitchy daughter (Ann Blyth) as the two of them compete for the affections of smoothy Zachary Scott. Crawford won her Oscar for this 1945 film under the workmanlike direction of Michael Curtiz, greatest of the contract directors. Good support from Jack Carson, Eve Arden, and Bruce Bennett.
