MILDRED PIERCE Joan Crawford was always known for her strong-shouldered look, a style that was displayed to perfection in Mildred Pierce. FACT: During filming, director Michael Curtiz fought with the actress over her wardrobe. She was told to buy clothes "off the rack" to look like a working mother. But Joan refused to look dowdy, and had her own dressmaker fit the waists and pad out the shoulders.


Mildred Pierce. Hmm, there's a recurring theme here between this movie, The Good Earth, & one of my other all time favorites, Imitation of Life.
