  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Old Acquaintance

    Team Bette Davis, all the way.

  2. Johnny's rating of the film Old Acquaintance

    Miriam Hopkins is so annoying here when Bette Davis finally gives her a rough shaking the crowd roars.

  3. mjgildea's rating of the film Old Acquaintance

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Not bad at all. There's something about a Warner Bros chick flick I really enjoy for some reason. As always, Bette Davis was great, which is even easier to emphasize when Miriam Hopkins is playing such an annoying crotch.

  4. BUSHRA's rating of the film Old Acquaintance

    i agree with the other posters. hopkins was lucky in the way that i don't think her character was supposed to be likeable or sympathetic but there's still a method in playing an antagonistic role and having the audience appreciate your presence. she would have been wise to take lessons from her arch-enemy, bette davis, who always has riveting performances no matter what her character is, including this movie.

  5. Owen Sound's rating of the film Old Acquaintance

    I imagine it must have been intimidating to act opposite Bette Davis but there’s no reason to over play it so much of the time, Miriam Hopkins.
