DIRECTOR: MICHAEL CURTIZ
CAST: JOAN CRAWFORD, ANN BLYTH, EVE ARDEN, ZACHARY SCOTT
Joan Crawford won an Oscar for her career-defining turn as a divorcee who tries to reconstruct her life by opening a restaurant, yet is saddled with the world’s worst daughter, Veda, played by a wicked Ann Blyth. Curtiz transformed James M. Cain’s character-driven, realist novel into a crime drama par excellence and an atypically domestic example of forties Hollywood noir, one that offers a deliciously masochistic take on maternal sacrifice.
