Bette Davis eyes
11 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bette Davis was 27 when she made "The Girl from Tenth Avenue" in 1935. She's very slim and pretty, and as someone points out on this site, she looks more realistic than Joan Crawford did in these roles because Warners was less concerned with glamor. Davis did some roles in the early days where she was glamored up, such as "The Man Who Played God" and "Fashions of 1934" where she looks very pretty. Even in black and white, those huge blue eyes of hers really pop. When I saw her in person when she toured with John Springer, who interviewed her on stage, that's the first thing you noticed. That and that she looked so much better than she did in most of her roles.

"The Girl from Tenth Avenue" is about shopgirl, Miriam, who takes pity on society drunk Geoff (Ian Hunter) whose ex-girlfriend Valentine (Katharine Alexander) has just married someone else. Miriam marries him, and the two are happy, and he's sober, until Valentine tosses her husband (Colin Clive) out. Then she tears after Geoff. Since Miriam is from a different social class and self-conscious about it, she feels threatened.

Predictable class-conscious drama with nice performances. This is early Davis, before Warner Brothers realized that she was a forceful actress. It would be a couple of years yet before she hit her stride. Alison Skipworth provides the comedy as Mrs. Martin, who tries to counsel Miriam through her troubles.

Primarily for Davis fans.
