Not Rated | | Crime, Drama, Film-Noir
A hard-working mother inches towards disaster as she divorces her husband and starts a successful restaurant business to support her spoiled daughter.
The ad slogan "Don't tell anyone what Mildred Pierce did" was parodied by a Los Angeles diner which had a sign that read: "For 65c we'll not only serve you a sell blue plate - we'll tell you what Mildred Pierce did."
I'm so smart, it's a disease.
Mildred's house on Corvallis Street in Glendale is shown as a one-story Spanish-style bungalow, however the interior has a staircase leading to the bedrooms.
The opening credits are presented with a background ocean scene that "washes" the credits on the screen.
