Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 152 ratings.
Mildred Pierce is a classic! Among women's films per se, it might be the best! Joan Crawford, once considered box office poison, turned her whole career around with this film! Joan was so good in this role that she won her only Oscar! Interestingly enough, her tenure at Warner Brothers produced her best films in my opinion! Check out films like
Possessed and The Damned Don't Cry to understand what i am talking about! Mildred Pierce has been revived with a HBO production starring Kate Winslet which is very good but it does not beat the original! Mildred Pierce is Joan Crawford with no mention of any wire hangers!
