Fasten your seatbelts for this brightly polished gem, a rush of sophisticated cynical comedy. Bette Davis is the aging theatrical star who offers a helping hand to Anne Baxter's young actress, only to find that the supposedly adoring fan has teeth. A peerless script brimming with sharp dialogue, plus the Oscar-winning outfits of Edith Head and a glowing cameo from Marilyn Monroe.
Dir Joseph L Mankiewicz, USA 1950, 138 mins, Cert U
