(1945, Michael Curtiz) Oscar winner Joan Crawford’s daughter-Ann-Blyth-loving Mildred relentlessly moves from housewife to waitress to restaurant mogul, en route dumping husband Bruce Bennett and acquiring sleazeball playboy Zachary Scott — or does she? Adapted from James M. Cain’s steamy pulp classic. Approx. 109 min. 35mm.
