Venetian Blinds

Anyone remember Mommie Dearest? Bette Midler describes a T-shirt with this image, and the caption “I Never Laid a Hand on Those Kids!”

The scene is a visual classic even if you’ve never seen the movie it comes from. Or, in my case, if you have seen the movie but don’t remember the Venetian blinds. I had to look it up: it’s in Mildred Pierce.
