English Summary:

Mildred Pierce is a 1945 American film noir crime-drama directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Joan Crawford, Jack Carson and Zachary Scott, also featuring Eve Arden, Ann Blyth and Bruce Bennett. Based on a novel by James M. Cain, this was Crawford's first starring film for Warner Bros. after leaving Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and won her the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Monte Beragon (Zachary Scott), the second husband of Mildred Pierce (Joan Crawford), is shot. The police tell Mildred that the murderer is her first husband, Bert Pierce (Bruce Bennett), after he is interrogated and confesses to the crime. Mildred protests that he is too kind and gentle to commit murder, and reveals her life story to the investigating officer in flashback.

Mildred and Bert are unhappily married. Mildred must bake and sell pies and cakes to support the family after Bert splits with his business partner, Wally Fay (Jack Carson). Bert bitterly accuses Mildred of favoring their daughters, especially Veda (Ann Blyth), over him. Their quarrel intensifies after a phone call from Bert's mistress, Maggie Biederhof (Lee Patrick), and they decide to separate.

Mildred retains custody of her two daughters, the 16-year-old Veda, a bratty social climber and aspiring pianist, and 10-year-old Kay (Jo Ann Marlowe), a tomboy. Mildred's principal goal is to provide material possessions for Veda, who longs for a social status above that of her family and is ashamed of her mother's work as a baker. When Mildred is forced to take a job as a waitress, she tries to hide the fact from Veda, but Veda learns the truth and treats her mother with derision.


Hungarian Summary:

Mildred Pierce alsó-középosztálybeli feleségként, kétgyerekes családanyaként már beletörődött a boldogtalanságba egy átlagos amerikai sorház falai között, lányainak azonban többet szeretne nyújtani ennél. Miután férje is elhagyja, pincérnőként áll munkába, a kemény munka eredményeképp pedig kisebb vagyont spórol össze. A pénzből sikerül vendéglőt nyitnia, néhány év alatt pedig étteremlánc-tulajdonos gazdag nővé válik. A legnagyobb jólétben is keményen dolgozik, nem vágyik úrinői életre, pénzét pedig nagyigényű, sznob lányára és naplopó, pitiáner élettársára költi. Mildred anyai érzéseitől vezérelve, kihasználva, önmagát feláldozva a bűn vonzásába kerül.
