Did You Know?

Goofs

Although constantly referred to as a "hero", Slick Novak's naval uniform only has his aviator wings; there are no ribbons to indicate that he had received any award or decoration for being a hero. In reality, he would have worn any and all ribbons to which he was entitled, per Navy regulations. See more »

Slow-moving, drab, perhaps Bette Davis' worst film
25 April 2001 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

I caught 'Winter Meeting' the other day on Turner Classic Movies and decided to watch because I was interested in seeing a young Jim Davis, some 30-odd years before his famous Jock Ewing role. He clearly was in over his head. His acting style was wooden and awkward and he seemed uncomfortable playing the romantic lead. You could almost see Bette Davis cringing in their love scenes. His dismal performance dragged her down with him. You should have stuck to westerns, Jim. One of the film's few bright spots was the performance of John Hoyt in a sarcastic supporting role. He brought some comic relief (intentional comic relief) to this otherwise drab soaper.
