What are people saying?

  • jamshid's rating of the film The Old Maid

    A suger coated tear-jerking centered on a romantic sacrifice of a mother for her illegitimate child. Bett Davis is the powerhouse: her swift moves in long shots, facial expressions and the way she plays a heart broken mother is striking. The rivalry and stream of hatred and jealousy between Davis and Hopkins needs much time and exploration. After all, a totally female melodrama badly in deserve of a refined remake.
