"Mildred Pierce" - What Veda wants, her mother - "Mildred Pierce" - provides. Even if Mildred must end her middle-class marriage, climb atop the male-dominated business world and marry a wealthy man she doesn't love. "I'll do anything," Mildred says in explaining her love for her daughter. But does anything include murder? From a novel by James M. Cain ("The Postman Always Rings Twice", "Double Indemnity"), "Mildred Pierce" is a classy murder mystery, a stylish film noir told from a woman's point of view. Joan Crawford's Mildred ended a two-year career slump, earned her a Best Actress Academy Award(R) and revitalized her career. Just when you think you got this nominee for five other Oscars(R) including Best Picture figured out, along comes a shocking twist ending.
