Mommie Dearest

Faye Dunaway’s performance as movie-star-turned-crazed-mother Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest may have earned her the Razzie Award for Worst Actress, but in 1981, the nation experienced a widespread fear of wire hangers. Anyone who has seen the film will at least remember the most famous scene: Joan screaming, “I told you! No wire hangers, ever!” after looking in her daughter’s closet, then proceeding to hit her with said object. This cult classic—based on adopted daughter Christina Crawford’s best-selling memoir full of abuse allegations—screens with MuVChat. As you watch, you can text your comments, which will appear instantly across the bottom of the screen. The best part? The screening is just in time for Mother’s Day. . . .
