Mildred Pierce 4K UHD

(1945) Melodrama casts noirish shadows in this portrait of maternal sacrifice from Hollywood master Michael Curtiz. Joan Crawford’s iconic performance as Mildred, a single mother hell-bent on freeing her children from the stigma of economic hardship, solidified Crawford’s career comeback and gave the actor her only Oscar.

Recasting James M. Cain’s rich psychological novel as a murder mystery, this bitter cocktail of blind parental love and all-American ambition is both unremittingly hard-boiled and sumptuously emotional. Formats: 4K UHD, with 4K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack. One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features. Extras: Conversation with critics Molly Haskell and Robert Polito; excerpt from a 1970 episode of "The David Frost Show" featuring Crawford; "Joan Craw­ford: The Ultimate Movie Star," a 2002 feature-length documentary; Q&A with actor Ann Blyth from 2006, presented by filmmaker Marc Huestis and conducted by film historian Eddie Muller; segment from a 1969 episode of the "Today" show featuring "Mildred Pierce" novelist James M.
