Mildred Pierce

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1945. Vintage reference photograph of director Michael Curtiz wielding a megaphone on location for an suburban exterior shot for the 1945 film. With a printed mimeo snipe on the verso providing detail regarding same.

Based on James M. Cain's 1941 novel, which follows a newly divorced woman as she begins a career as a baker to provide for her family, to the shame of her spoiled, ungrateful firstborn daughter. A career-reviving role for Joan Crawford, who won an Academy Award for her performance, following her 1943 departure from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Shot on location in Glendale, Los Angeles, and Malibu, California.

7.25 x 9.25 inches. Very Good, with light dryness and cracking to the finish, and light wear to the bottom corners.
