Bow Tie Cinema at the Harbour Center continues its weekend "Cine Classic" film series with one of the greats of the film noir genre, the 1945 drama Mildred Pierce.
Joan Crawford would win her one-and-only Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of the masochistic mom who sacrifices everything for her pathologically selfish daughter.
With strong support from Jack Carson and Zachary Scott as the men in her life, Joan gave a definitive performance in this dark adaptation of the popular James M. Cain novel.
Here's the original trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkrUc30A-wU
As always, my commentary will cover little known facts about the film's stars, director and production. Don't miss the opportunity to see this classic on the big screen!
Admission is $5.50 ($4.50 with a Bow Tie free Criterion Club card which can be obtained online at Bow Tie's website or at the theater.)
Be sure to check Bow Tie Harbour 9's website for the complete list of their weekend "Cine Classic" films for June.
Hope to see lots of fellow Annapolis Movie Club members Saturday mornings at Bow Tie Harbour 9.
