45/100 (Harika bir finish, kusursuz oyunculuklar, bir o kadar iyi sinematografi ile birlikte gelen kötü senaryo. 1) Bacakları tutmayan bir kadın asansörsüz evde neden ikinci katta yaşar. 2) O kadar zengin bir kadın neden 7/24 hizmetçi tutmak yerine gündelikçi tutar ve akıl sağlığı yerinde olmayan kardeşine güvenir. 3) En önemlisi. Pencerenin olduğu bir odada neden bağırarak dışarıdan yardım istenmez.)
This deranged cat and mouse film benefits from the full commitment given by Davies and Crawford in fleshing out the sordid details of Henry Farrell's novel. Suspenseful throughout and executed with demonic zeal by evil genius Robert Aldrich, the story sadly overlooks a potentially meaty character study in favor of more mundane thrills given by the obvious setting.
Rewatched and re-loved. Bette Davis, BETTE DAVIS. I still remember the day when I saw All About Eve for the first time, I think I was 14. I've always wanted to watch all her films and hope can do it someday. Rewatching her films is a pleasure; watching her films for the first time is a life-changing experience.
Warming up for FX's "Feud: Bette vs. Joan", I had to see this. Delusional Jane vs. Suffering Blanche makes for great entertaining... that's for sure. This almost surrealistic story of the Hudson sisters never gets boring and even if the final twist was somewhat predictable, it was a fun ride. Davis was just... beyond words!
