“Joan Crawford was brilliant at being over-emotional, desperate, and her own wrong-headed drama queen. She was ideally suited to the pitch of James M. Cain’s melodrama and to the unequivocal intention to make a knock-down, drag-out women’s picture in which Mildred and Veda shatter every Hollywood cliché about natural and requited mother-love. By contrast, Kate Winslet [in the new Todd Haynes adaptation] is too placid, not fierce enough. She eats pies, where Crawford fed on raw flesh.”
