Everyone who has a weakness for old movies should have this one in his/her collection.
Steely Joan Crawford evokes sympathy as an abandoned, financially-strapped wife and mother, though you know all along that Mildred will make it somehow.
Make it she does, stumbling into the restaurant business and making a success of it in spite of the fact that men find her so darned irresistible that she has to stop and peel one off every few steps.
Adding to Mildred's troubles is the fact that oldest daughter Vida(played by dewy-eyed young beauty Ann Blyth) has become an insufferable snob somewhere along the line, in spite of her middle-class upbringing. Mildred worships Vida, in spie of the fact that Vida is moody, verbally abusive, and impossible to please.Vida wants to be "rich", but when Mildred makes lots of money, it still doesn't suit Vida because her mother worked (ew, yuck) for it. You wish that Mildred would shake her, or at least ground her.
Eve Arden, one of my all-time favorites, is her usual wonderful self as Mildred's shrewd secretary and loyal friend.
Butterfly McQueen gets wasted once again in the role of the family's maid.
Even if you're not a Joan Crawford fan, buy this one; it makes terrific rainy-night viewing.

I've seen many movies of Joan Crawford, but I think that this movie gives a true glimpse of her character (not at all portrayed in "Mommie Dearest"). This movie shows Joan as a caring loving woman to her husband and children, a mother who will go to any length to have a better life for her and her family, who seems to show true emotion and tears when her little daughter dies, to win her daughter Veda's love -- even to go as far enough to protect her when Veda does murder! Realistically, if I acted that way, my mother would have made true those words, "Get out before I kill you." LOL It's a classic that's not to be missed. Strike up the fireplace, put your feet up on the couch, get your hanky ready and enjoy this classic.

Here is the story of your average post-World War II housewife who believes that nothing is too good--or too much--for her two precious daughters. By the time this great soap opera is over, she has buried one child, experienced the murder of a cheating, mooching sleazeball of a husband, sent the other daughter off to prison, and gone into bankruptcy. But at least Eve Arden's character is good for a few laughs. At the end, though, she seems to reconcile with her first husband, whom she kicked out of the house in the first reel for losing his job. It's nice to know one can sometimes start out all over again.

Mildred pierce in his spirit the film together with The Pastoral Symphony of Jean Delanoy who better explores the female world in this decade so filled with trouble and fear.
The close experience of the Second World war in a certain way was a crossroad for a huge crowd of directors. 1945 is the birth of the italian neorealism, the full comittment of the film noir, the first aproximations of the social film (Remember Kazan , Wilder , Dmytrik , Losey, Wyler,) and I think it was the starting point of the sparkle for the new wave cinema ten years after.
If you watch this movie, you`ll forget you`re in the a a film from the forties. Because the story is told so perfectly and the matter in question is so related with everyone of us that all the explored universe of feelings , the proud, the anger and the constance of the main character in a ravishing performance of Mrs. Crawford and the astonishing Anne Blyth, makes that film not only a cult movie but a obligated reference for those who love the art of cinema.
If I coukd, I`d give it ten stars instaed of just five.

Joan Crawford had been making successful movies since the silent era. Her early career was full of singing and dancing, rarely showing the edginess that came to mark her later films. Before she was forced to leave MGM, most often she played roles that demonstrated a lighter touch. After signing with Warners, the Joan Crawford that most Americans came to know her by became evident. With MILDRED PIERCE, she shows the quintessential gravitas that later generations came to revere.
By 1945, Crawford's career was seen, mistakenly as it turned out, to be in eclipse. Director Michael Curtiz saw in her the actress who could radiate the same ruthless business sense that marked her business life but was paradoxically absent from that of her personal life. Just as Jay Gatsby came to symbolize the hollowness of the Jazz Age, so did Mildred do for the new spirit of American woman who had to struggle alone to build a life while their husbands were busy fighting overseas. Oddly enough, the role of Mildred was first offered to Bette Davis, who unwisely turned it down. Director Curtiz's instincts about Crawford were squarely on the mark as she went on to win an Oscar for Best Actress, beating out Ingrid Bergman, Greer Garson, and Gene Tierney. The toughness of the Mildred Pierce from the novel by James Cain is evident in nearly every scene except when Crawford chooses to drop the mask of continuous self-sacrifice to reveal a woman who has been buffeted by one husband who fails to see her essential goodness, a second husband who sees her only as a meal ticket, and a daughter whose nastiness was rivalled only by Bette Davis as slutty Mildren Rogers from OF HUMAN BONDAGE.
Crawford is Mildred Pierce,a tough-minded woman, abandoned by her husband (Bruce Bennet) to care for her two young daughters.
