The 1945 noir-melodrama Mildred Pierce is highly interesting on a number of counts. First off, it’s a superb example of Hollywood studio craftsmanship. The studio system was at its highest height in the early 40s and along with Raoul Walsh, Michael Curtiz was responsible for many Warner Bros. hits, not the least of which being Casablanca (1942). The system being what it was however, the director was just one cog in a vast mechanism (neither Walsh or Curtiz had any consistent directorial style that I can discern), and what we have here in Mildred Pierce is a brilliant script (a Ranald MacDonald adaptation of James M. Cain’s novel), superb noir cinematography (take a bow Ernest Haller), terrific sets (Anton Grot), sweeping typically lush Max Steiner music and a cluster of marvelous performances, all marshaled by Curtiz’s unfussy, clear and to the point direction. Not all studio films were good of course and for every one success there were ten or twenty failures, but when all the constituent parts worked well together as they do here, then the results are stupendous and all doubts about ‘commercial Hollyweird dross’ vanish.

Curtiz apparently didn’t initially want Joan Crawford for the title part, but she puts in an extraordinary Oscar-winning display as a once-affluent now down-on-her-luck divorcee in south California who succeeds through hard graft to establish a restaurant chain. Those who only know her for her camp larger-than-life roles in films such as Johnny Guitar (1954) and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) will be surprised by the subtle sensitivity she displays in this film. Playing alongside her is Ann Blyth as her spoiled daughter Veda, the inspirer and the destroyer of Mildred’s hard-earned success.

This new 4K HD restoration is just a joy. The picture quality is just so much sharper than the previous DVD release and the Uncompressed Sound is fantastic. Couple with the brilliant extra's - just amazing value. Joan Crawford at her very best - so worthy of her Oscar win. Ann Blyth is also superb. Buy this - it's just superb.

This film is a camp classic but it works as a film noir and compares to any done by Bogart. Joan Crawford is her usual brilliant self and her side kick Eve Arden , one of the most excellent supporting actresses of her time. There has been a re-make which tried to match the original but not quite. The story is about a woman , left by a philandering husband with two young daughters and a house to pay for.
She does what she does best: making chicken pies and cakes which expands from a local neighbour hood operation into a chain of very successful restaurants which supplies her with enough money to spoil her ungrateful daughter Veda who eventually turns on her mother.
Beautifully filmed: a Joan Crawford classic without doubt.
