Mildred Pierce (Michael Curtiz, 1945, 35mm, 111 mins)

New print! The mother of all melodramas, this Curtiz classic gives us a career-defining (and Oscar-winning) performance by the great Joan Crawford, who stars as a restauranteur reeling from the murder of her husband and the machinations of her vicious daughter Veda (played by Ann Blyth at her most loathsome). A must-see! 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

The “Treasures from the Yale Film Archive” series is presented with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
