Clip Description
Mommie Dearest is a biograhical drama film about Joan Crawford, played by Faye Dunaway. This was just one scene about the supposed abuse claimed by her adopted daughter Christina.

Movie Description
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!"
