Mommie Dearest (1981) with intro by Ann Glenn

Bow Tie Cinema at the Harbour Center continues its ongoing weekend "Cine Classic" Film Series with the 1981 so-bad-its-good cult classic (just in time for Mother's Day!) Mommie Dearest.  Based on the memoir of Joan Crawford's daughter, Christina Crawford, the movie purports to show what life was like for Christina growing up the child of an OCD movie star.  Faye Dunaway, playing Joan, takes scenery chewing to a new height (depth?)

Here's the trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WQeu5qnVc4

Ann’s commentary begins at 10:30 and includes little known/fascinating facts about the film's stars, director and production. Film screening starts at 11:00 a.m. Audience comments and questions are encouraged.

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.)
