Storyline

Bart is a clerk for a publishing company. He has written a novel. His wife Peggy and he have five children. Bart's former girlfriend, Mildred, is manager of the company's Paris office. She manages to get the novel published and talks Bart into marrying her after he divorces Peggy. Initially successful, Bart must turn to writing trash to keep Mildred in money. When he sees how well his four sons and daughter Margaret have grown without his help, he asks Peggy to let them all come live with him and Mildred. Peggy agrees, but the arrival of his beloved children puts Mildred's future in jeopardy. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

The 23 Year Old Bette Davis
6 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Having been a star pupil at John Murray Anderson's Dramatic School, Bette Davis made her screen debut in this year and continued solidly acting in films throughout her life. What did they see in her at this stage? She had such a bland face which could be manufactured as being beautiful, but she wasn't exactly attractive was she?
