About the Movie

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?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Joan Crawford is playing a most troubled lady, and giving a sincere and generally effective characterization of same. – New York Times, Jul 25, 2011

Rotten: All this is good melodrama and fair entertainment, but it is much closer to the waltz-time schmalz of Kathleen Norris than to the fox-trot brass of James M. Cain. – TIME Magazine, Jul 25, 2011

Fresh: A class feature, showmanly produced by Jerry Wald and tellingly directed by Michael Curtiz. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The archetypal Joan Crawford movie. – Don Druker, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

An oldy, but SOOOOOOOO good

Although a new HBO mini-series of this book is coming out soon, I still think this is the ULTIMATE classic! Great performances by one and all; perhaps just a touch of melodrama at times, but this is a MUST see! Buy it, rent it, you won't be sorry!

Joan Crawford at Her Best

This is one of my all-time favorites and a performance by Joan Crawford that I can't help but measure all others by. You'll watch this movie over and over again guaranteed!


Another great movie from Warner bros.
