Mildred Pierce

Happy Saturday! And it's back to the Top Ten films. (I believe we are up to #5?)

Today's pick is "Mildred Pierce" - made in 1945 - it starred the magnificent Joan Crawford - She won Best Actress for her fabulous portrayal of how NOT to raise a daughter. You can check out one of the more delicious scenes between Mildred and her daughter Veda, played by Anne Blyth here.

I don't remember the previous 4 - but I don't think I could watch a whole movie of this! My own life was disfunctional enough!

We have this movie. Very bad parenting. LOL That Veda sure was a stinker.

I love All About Eve.
