Friday Night Noir: Mildred Pierce (1945)
June 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Shoulderpads, murder, and pie—what the hell more do you want? Throw in razor-sharp dialogue and the sunny despair of Los Angeles noir.
Joan Crawford tears up the screen as Mildred Pierce, a woman drawn into a police investigation after the murder of her second husband, her name being the last word to leave his lips. Matters become more complicated when she lures an old friend to the murder scene to frame him for the crime. The reasons for her duplicity are recanted through flashbacks, showing her ascension from humble waitress to successful business owner, devotion to her children and their well-being, and her complicated relationships with men.
