Episode 6: Mildred Pierce

Mildred PierceWe’re back with more Joan Crawford, because in this episode, we discuss her Oscar-winning performance in Mildred Pierce!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because we spoil the hell out of it. The film can be currently be found for streaming rental on Google Play, iTunes, Amazon, and Vudu, and Netflix has it on DVD if you still have their disc program.

Our next episode will be our first foray into the world of Humphrey Bogart: Key Largo! Look for it on August 21st!
