Another melodrama, another film that is not my cup of tea. I don’t know why people like these movies and while I can appreciate the art of making them, I simply can’t stand them. To top it all off this one stars the queen of melodrama, Bette Davis. She plays an ugly duckling who blossoms when brought out from the shadow of her tyrannical mother. She continues to blossom and ultimately finds love. It pulls all the heart strings and Bette Davis hits all the right notes. Bette is also backed by a terrific supporting cast including one of my favorite actors: Claude Rains. So if melodrama is your thing then you will love this, me not so much.
