MILDRED PIERCE  USA 1945

Joan Crawford performs the perfect part in this story of a rejected
wife and mother who rises from waitress to owner of a huge franchise
of eateries. Her success comes despite her snobbish, greedy daughter
(Ann Blyth) and uninspiring and financially dependent new husband
(Zachary Scott). 111m


Tuesday 20 March

THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE USA 1946

This film was made despite both the original book being banned and the
subject matter having barely hidden hints of sexual depravity. The
latest Hollywood "sweater girl", Lana Turner, plays a bored roadhouse
waitress who pairs up with a drifter (John Garfield) with intent to
murder. 113m
