  1. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film Jezebel

    6.9/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-35v

  2. Jack Joseph Kahn's rating of the film Jezebel

    The ending is really sick *slaps knee*

  3. Sergiu Scripcă's rating of the film Jezebel

    Davis and Bainter are good, but the movie itself isn't quite up to par. And the way it halfheartedly acknowledges the blatant sexism and racism of its situation, before just going ahead and embracing them fully, is pretty off-putting.

  4. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Jezebel

    Warner Brothers' answer to "Gone with the Wind" may lack the epic scale and grand cinematic of that film, but it is a fine Southern drama in its own right. The story is quite compelling, and it even makes some poignant examinations of the attitudes and politics of the period. The acting is solid throughout, headlined by Bette Davis' incredible performance as the multi-layered central character.

  5. steeeeellaaaaa's rating of the film Jezebel

    bette davis and william wyler were a match made in filmmaking heaven, too bad they had to sleep together in real life and fuck it up

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Jezebel

    Du bon travail, fort académique, (trop) rondement mené... www.cinefiches.com

  7. Cojocariu Claudia's rating of the film Jezebel

  8. SpacePirate's rating of the film Jezebel

    Wyler made Davis a legend by working with her in this film. Thats enough of a reason to check it out. Unfortunately, the story is a bit dated and Fonda feels woefully miscast. Davis' performance alone adds an additional star to this slight misstep in the great Wyler's career. 4 stars

  9. Ryan Christopher Coleman's rating of the film Jezebel

    like a trollipy Gone With The Wind in half the time. the infamous red gown Bette wears to the Olympus ball, and the calamity that ensues because of it, comprise some of my favorite scenes of film history!

  10. Aardsy's rating of the film Jezebel

    Ho hum except for Davis.

  13. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Jezebel

  14. NICOLE86's rating of the film Jezebel

    The only thing that made this movie good was the performance of Bette Davis.

  15. Ghostman's rating of the film Jezebel

    Betty Davis is amazing in this, pretty good movie too.

  16. MrPinkGorilla's rating of the film Jezebel

    Entrañable señorita Davis, se apodera de la escena como de los hombres que la rodean y en ningún momento queda por sentado que ha hecho algo que no haya planeado, es una encanto verla en el rol de southern bel que la catapultó como una verdadera Diva.

  17. Cassandra Taylor's rating of the film Jezebel

    i wish they spent more time near the end showing her caring for him and less in the dress scandal

  18. MarcH's rating of the film Jezebel

    Shows how dated Gone With The Wind might have been without Selznick's influence. The movie just suffers if Bette Davis is not in the frame...this is easily one of her 5 best performances.

  19. David M.K.'s rating of the film Jezebel

    With any other actress in the lead, this probably would have been a ho-hum historical melodrama, but Bette Davis really owns this thing and brings it up to her level.

  20. Owen Sound's rating of the film Jezebel

    I love her most when she's meanest, because I know that's when she's lovin' most.

  21. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Jezebel

    Is there a greater performance in American Film history than Bette Davis's Julie? I don't think so. She worked with a great director this time and he completely understood her talents and knew how to showcase them.

  22. Andrés Pff's rating of the film Jezebel

    this was so racist and funny.

  23. Roscoe's rating of the film Jezebel

    The brilliance of much of the acting and the splendor of the production can help you miss the rather labored quality of the story, and some unfortunate casting doesn't help much. Why on earth does the magnificent Bette Davis' beautiful and thrilling Julie Marsden want anything to do with that stiffnecked fool Preston Dillard, especially as embodied by the appalling Henry Fonda?

  24. chanandre's rating of the film Jezebel

    [Cinémathèque PT #76: 35 mm] - I'm still figuring out in my head how shocking a color the dress Bette Davis wore to that ball must have been to turn all those moralistic heads.
