The Little Foxes (1941)


Recommended Posts

Can someone explain to me again why the margins on threads

like this are so screwed up? Just to get to the word 'reply'

I have to scroll ALL the way to the right, as far as it will go.

Someone said once it was because the original post was

copied from another program, like MSWord or similar.

I don't love it, but I do find it intriguing to see who's going to win

out in the end. I never found Bette to be beautiful, except when

she was really, really young, in the late 20's, early 30's, but

something about her makeup and hair made her appear much

better in this than in others of the same era. She could have

won an oscar without saying a word or moving for that scene

where Herbert Marshall was trying to get to his medicine. Man

that was pure evil.

P.S. Lzcutter: what do you mean by a long link?

Anne,

 

Davis looks especially good in this movie because she was made up to look like Tallulah Bankhead, who played the part (triumphantly) on Broadway. several of Davis' movie roles were originally played by Bankhead on stage. However, Bankhead unfortunately had the kind of eyes that appear "dead" on film, and the studios weren't happy with her.

Hi,

 

I do like this movie but I like Bette in "The Letter" better.

 

I like the performances of Patricia Collinge in this and loved Gale Sondergaard in the other.

 

These are two of Davis' best performances and probably contributed to her publicity as "Nobodies better than Bette when she's being bad!".......
