- Warner Brothers Archives, http://www.usc.edu/libraries/collections/warner_bros/. A list of actresses drawn up by producer Jerry Wald shows Crawford's name at the top of a list of actresses mentioned for the role in 1942. In the file for Mildred Pierce, neither Bette Davis nor Barbara Stanwyck's names are mentioned for the role at any stage. Ann Sheridan's name came up when negotiations with Crawford broke down in 1944 during her first year at Warner Bros.
