Joan Crawford and Ann Blyth in "Mildred Pierce"
It's "Joan Crawford Week!" at Trailers from Hell, and today screenwriter Mick Garris introduces the ultimate noir-melodrama, Michael Curtiz's "Mildred Pierce."

"How like a serpent's tooth is a thankless child." Few of them have been more thankless than Veda (16 year old Ann Blyth), Mildred's ungrateful daughter in Michael Curtiz's classic adaptation of James M. Cain's best selling novel. Cain disliked the movie but thought Crawford was perfect in the role Bette Davis turned down. It was a huge hit and put Crawford back on top with an Oscar win for best actress. The recent mini-series cable remake with Kate Winslet was widely admired.
