    “Mildred Pierce” is one of my favorite movies… and I would love to have been the one to smack Veda’s face for her – but then they’d have had to rebuild the stair railing.

    I can just hear Eve Arden spouting that line. She was sooo good in “Mildred Pierce”. The movie really needed her presence.
