Mrs. Edna Blanton: It's a man's world. They get everything out of it. I've told Fred hundreds of times, I'd never divorce him. No matter what he did, he couldn't make me divorce him. I'm his wife till death do us part - and I'm very healthy!

Is this vintage Bette Davis film w/ Barry Sullivan available on VHS or DVD? Also in the cast was Jane Cowl. I hope it hasn't been destroyed somehow or someone has film rights. Please advise on current status of this good film. "Another Man's Poison" is a film done within a year of this one. The subject of divorce is well documented in this Davis classic "Payment on Demand". I know this film has not aired on any TV networks. I am wondering when it was last aired since its initial release. I know Davis fans are wondering what became of this 1951 film. "A Catered Affair" is another Davis film that has not received a lot of air time but I know this has been re- released since its debut. I procured "Mr. Skeffington" recently in DVD which was a treat having the director comment on making this film w/ Bette

Respectfully, WCM
