"Monte Beragon est assassiné de plusieurs coups de feu dans sa propriété du bord de mer. Sa femme, Mildred Pierce, est convoquée à un interrogatoire et apprend que son ancien mari, Bert Pierce, s'accuse du meurtre. Mais devant l'inspecteur Peterson, elle récuse ce mensonge et revient longuement sur son passé pour expliquer toutes les circonstances entourant le drame. Jusqu’où peut mener l'amour d'une mère? Tout ce que Veda souhaite, sa mère — Mildred Pierce — le lui offre. Mais cela ne va pas sans peine. Dans l'univers machiste américain, Mildred n'hésite pas à rompre avec son mari qui entretient une relation avec une autre femme depuis plusieurs mois. Pour répondre aux exigences de luxe de sa fille, elle doit donc se démener pour grimper les échelons sociaux. Elle commence par être une simple serveuse dans un restaurant bas de gamme, mais son ambition la pousse à ouvrir son propre établissement avec l'aide d'un ancien collaborateur de son mari, Wally Fay. À cette occasion, elle rencontre le séduisant, mais oisif et paresseux, Monte Beragon qu'elle épouse, le croyant riche, même si elle ne l'aime pas, tout ça pour hisser sa fille dans l'échelle sociale et favoriser l'amour qu'elle lui porte : « Je ferais n'importe quoi pour elle ». Mais cela inclut-il un meurtre?"--Site wikipédia.org, consulté le 13 juillet 2017

Lip by Tracey Moffatt( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is Hollywood's favorite role for black women: the maid. Sassy or sweet, snickeringly attentive or flippantly dismissive, the performers who play them steal every scene they are in, and Tracy Moffatt's entertaining video collage reveals the narrow margin Hollywood has allowed black actresses to shine in. But shine they do. Giving lip is proven an art form in these scenes from 1930's cinema to present-day movies featuring a remarkable roster of undervalued actresses and their more celebrated white costars."--Http://www.wmm.com
