Not great, not bad. Bette Davis plays a gorgeous monster. The noirish moment when Davis gets Franchot Tone to buckle in the rain was gorgeous. Overall a nice quick watch even if Margaret Lindsay plays a total doormat.
I know Davis thought she did not deserve the Oscar that she received for this performance, and maybe she was right since she was competing against Katharine Hepburn for her career-best work in "Alice Adams," but Davis is fantastic in this film. She is so fierce and uncompromising and courageous.
