This is actually a review of OLD ACQUAINTANCE . . .
2 January 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . A CLASSIC WOMAN'S PICTURE, which also features Charlotte Chandler as one of its "talking heads" (as she was on THE MAKING OF REBECCA). Though CLASSIC was a Trailer Park Production Co. "bonus feature" on the 2006 Warner Bros. DVD release for OLD ACQUAINTANCE, no one got around to creating an IMDb page for CLASSIC (which deserves a rating of "7" in its own right).

Frenemies never got so much attention . . .

. . . as Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins in OLD ACQUAINTANCE: A CLASSIC WOMEN'S PICTURE. Since these two actresses hated each other in Real Life as well as in the movies (such as OLD MAID and OLD ACQUAINTANCE that they made together--not unlike "I" and Mrs. Danvers in REBECCA) it would have been far more true-to-life if one of these chicks had gunned down the other (preferably, Kit could have blown away Millie: explicitly--none of this Namby Pamby "Oh, she must have hit her head on a stray anchor when I sort of pushed her" that Maxim says in regard to the first Mrs. De Winter, a.k.a. REBECCA's, demise). This would have reflected the True Nature of the American Woman--such as Hedda Hopper--who ruled the roost while the men of America were off fighting and dying in World War Two. This Featurette does NOT mention that OLD ACQUAINTANCE was one of Paul Revere's several times great-granddaughter Anne's final films, because venal American women such as Miriam and Hedda are so easily able to rile up their sheep-like Red State "sisters" to ostracize any Free-Thinking woman. Hedda took advantage of the loss of sexual balance caused by heavy U.S. male losses in WWII by stirring up the thoughtless female rabble to Blacklist beloved NATIONAL VELVET Oscar-winner Anne and thousands of other ladies accused of being Democrats, so that hard-hearted, hatched-faced women (like Mrs. Danvers) would dominate American screens for decades to come.
