Our first sight of JOAN CRAWFORD in "Mildred Pierce" (1945) is the Crawford many of us have in mind: Wearing an impossibly broad-shouldered mink swing coat with matching hat, long dark hair, thick black eyebrows and a huge, lipsticked mouth to match her huge, haunted eyes.

Mildred Pierce, 1945, was a resounding critical and commercial success. It epitomized the lush visual style and the hard-boiled film noir sensibility that defined Warner Bros. movies of the later 1940s, earning Joan Crawford the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Joan Crawford--Mildred Pierce, I really think she was much prettier in the when her hair color and makeup had a much softer look. Her makeup in the and was way too harsh, it covered up how pretty she really was.
