Mildred Pierce
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
2.5 Stars
Mildred Pierce Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: NH Film Class
Rating: PG Year: 1945 Category: Drama
Director: Michael Curtiz Time: 111:00:00 min. Writer: James M. Cain & Ranald MacDougall

Mine: If you like melodrama, then this is a great movie. There is tons of atmosphere. I am not a fan of the whole genre, but this is a good one.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Crawford won an Oscar as housewife-turned-waitress who finds success in business but loses control of ungrateful daughter Blyth--especially when she finds they're competing for the love of the same man. Solid adaptation (scripted by Ranald MacDougall) of James M. Cain's novel with top supporting cast. Also shown in computer-colored version.
