A mother’s love leads to murder – and an Oscar. What Veda wants, her mother, Mildred Pierce, (played by Joan Crawford) 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, she will do so to support her girl. This mruder mystery and stylish film noir with a twist ending is told from a woman’s point of view. Crawford won the BEst Actress Academy Award, and the film was nominated for five Oscars. (1945)
