Mildred Pierce (1945)

Joan Crawford delivers an Oscar-winning performance in this murder mystery. This was a comeback for Crawford in the title role as a successful single mom dealing with an increasingly difficult relationship with her haughty, demanding daughter. Added bonus: Crawford (a woman!) does the voiceover — a rarity in the noir genre.
