Bette Davis is wonderful in an otherwise routine film., 2 February 2000
Author: Macoco from Philadelphia, PA

Although the film reads as a fairly typical marriage / divorce romance film, Bette Davis stands out as a feisty third wheel to George Brent and Ruth Chatterton. She is at her most playful and spirited in the scene in Brent's apartment before he leaves for Europe. Wonderful stuff.
