Directed by William Wyler. With Bette Davis, Herbert Marshall, and Teresa Wright. A wealthy Southern family is riven by greed and corruption in this sinister, corrosive film version of Lillian Hellman’s famous play. Bette Davis is regal. Cinematographer Gregg Toland shot this movie right after he did Citizen Kane. “You are unlikely ever to see a better version than this.” –Time Out Film Guide.
