Short Documentary Assessing the Impact of the Bette Davis Classic
24 July 2016 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Produced by Warner Brothers as one of the extras to the DVD release of MR. SKEFFINGTON (1944), this short documentary has a variety of talking heads describing the origins and impact of the film on its original release, as well as explaining how and why its appeal has lasted so long.

Most of the comments are of the usual "it was great working with ..." variety, coupled with references to Bette Davis's legendary penchant for dominating a set. Director Vincent Sherman's reminiscences are perhaps the most interesting, as he recalls how he forged an effective working relationship with the star, who frequently wanted to go her own way, yet listened to him when she understood that his suggestions might help to improve her performance on screen.
