Classic Radioland: Claire Trevor as "Mildred Pierce"

Classic Radioland: Claire Trevor as "Mildred Pierce"

Here our classic film buffs is our second installment of our classic radioland article for all you lovers of movies and radio programs. This time around we are featuring leading lady Claire Trevor as the title role and of the film's title, "Mildred Pierce" (circa 1950's). Zachary Scott plays the role of Monte (which he played in the motion picture). This time it is Hollywood Radio that brings us this lovely production.

Mildred Pierce Plot:

Zachary Scott
The Classic Film Gentleman does not want to give too much away on this film especially to any who has never saaw nor heard this lovely production. Mildred Pierce is truly a woman ahead of her time where she had the know how and drive to make it all on her own from nothing and no help. Mildred has a daughter named Veda who always wants more and is alone with her mother since Mildred's cheating husband has long since left the picture. Mildred always seeks approval from Veda and never seems to obtain it no matter what she does even when it is working from the bottom of a restaurant and making it all her own. An amazing film and a great production done on radio. The film had Joan Crawford who won an Academy Award for her role and Claire Trevor stunning audiences with her take on it as well. You will be impressed by the radio performance by Claire Trevor along with Zachary Scott which does the book and film justice.

Now get comfortable and turn the lights low and have your classic evening like it would have been over 40 years ago. No worries we as a group will ahve these article as a norm and together will have a classic radio listening party!!! Good evening and happy listening!
