Mommie Dearest

Lists: None yet

Brief Synopsis: "Based on Christina Crawford's slanderous, tell-all biography, Mommie Dearest paints a portrait of a Joan Crawford the public never knew. The film portrays Crawford as a wicked, abusive mother who lives as though she's perpetually onscreen. In the movie's most memorable scene, Crawford berates her daughter, Christina, for improperly hanging her clothes, screaming, "No more wire hangers!""
