Mildred Pierce (4K, Blu-ray)



Melodrama casts noirish shadows in this portrait of maternal sacrifice from Hollywood master Michael Curtiz. Joan Crawfords iconic performance as Mildred, a single mother hell-bent on freeing her children from the stigma of economic hardship, solidified Crawfords career comeback and gave the actor her only Oscar. But as Mildred pulls herself up by her bootstraps, first as an unflappable waitress and eventually as the well-heeled owner of a successful restaurant chain, the ingratitude of her materialistic firstborn (a diabolical Ann Blyth) becomes a venomous serpents tooth, setting in motion an endless cycle of desperate overtures and heartless recriminations. Recasting James M. Cains rich psychological novel as a murder mystery, this bitter cocktail of blind parental love and all-American ambition is both unremittingly hard-boiled and sumptuously emotional. 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES 4K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack One 4K UHD disc of the film p
