MILDRED PIERCE US herald, 1945, from the #MBCarchive

A mother's love can lead to murder! Joan Crawford delivers an Academy Award-winning performance as a woman clawing her way to success to provide her daughters with everything she lacks.

“THIS GREAT FILM IS A MORE SUBTLE, NUANCED BEAST THAN EXPECTED”-David Jenkins, Little White Lies

“The film is a chilling demonstration of the fact that, in a patriarchal society, when a woman steps outside the home the end result may be disastrous.”-Time Out

“You don't think of Michael Curtiz, the great house director of Warner Bros. spectacles and prestige pictures, as one of the great noir directors but the opening twenty minutes or so is a master class in film noir directing...”-Sean Axmaker, Seanax.com
