Kim, Taehyung. A Study of the Adaptations of Mildred Pierce: Focusing on Mildreds Emotions and Labor. Studies in English Language & Literature 46.3 (2020): 17-39. This study aims to analyze films by Michael Curtiz and Todd Haynes, whose adaptations of the novel Mildred Pierce pose meaningful questions that advance the understanding of adaptation studies. Mildred and Vidas motherdaughter relationship during the pursuit of their desires, subjectivities, and class mobility forms the main plot and theme of melodrama in James Cains original text. This research, which proposes different strategies of adapters, focuses on the representation of Mildreds emotions, work, and labor in both films. Curtizs Mildred Pierce juxtaposes film noir and melodrama, rearranging plots and character relationships, while Hayness television series follows the original story line, deepening the psychologies of heroines. The original novels narratives and characters are reflected and transformed based on the adapters motivation, the audiences expectations, the media industrys needs, and societal ethics. The adaptations cultural appropriation reworks the source text using a series of narratives, perspectives, and visual signals to provide insights into and an understanding of Mildred as the melodramatic heroine.
