Bette Davis portrays a woman that does not want to sacrifice her career for a man.She's a very modern woman for the time and the conclusion is rather daring :a couple is not ideally the best thing but for lack of anything better.In "Jules et Jim" ,thirty years later ,François Truffault would say the same.
As for the film itself,it's a big bore.There's nothing really witty or funny in the endless dialog between Davis and her husband .I almost fell asleep while watching it.Bette Davis is a superior actress,but she needs worthy material to work with.One wonders why someone would choose this,among all her great parts.
