Now, you might say “Mildred Pierce already came.” And I would say “your double enterndres are a little too predictable.” But also accurate, because the Joan Crawford version of Mildred Pierce came out in 1945 (and it is fantastic). Now it’s being remade as a 7 part mini-series on HBO starring Kate Winslet. Do we think it will hold up to the original? No. Will we still be watching it? Umm, of course. The Vampire Queen of Louisiana is in it.
