Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"I'd rather do anything than keep still."
  - Stanley Timberlake (BETTE DAVIS)

Description by

Scheming sibling Bette Davis plots to steal sister Olivia de Havilland's fiance - not once but twice - in this grand soap opera-style drama from director John Huston. The cast includes George Brent, Charles Coburn, Dennis Morgan, Hattie McDaniel; look for Humphrey Bogart and the cast of "The Maltese Falcon" as customers in a bar scene.

Product Description:

A reckless siren ruins her sister's life and eventually her own when she runs off with her sibling's husband. Based on a novel by Ellen Glasgow.

Plot Synopsis:

Selfish Stanley Timberlake abruptly breaks up with her fiancé and seduces her sister's husband, who runs away with her. After the wayward spouse gets divorced, he marries the wicked woman, but her lying, cheating ways soon drive him to suicide. Then Stanley returns home to her family, where she continues to wreak havoc on those around her. Guilty of killing a child in a hit-and-run accident, Stanley wrongly accuses a black man of the crime, but eventually the truth catches up with her.


Production Notes:

  • Based on Ellen Glasgow's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
  • Walter Huston, the director John Huston's father, appeared in a bit role as bartender as a token of good luck for his son.
  • Actors from "The Maltese Falcon" appear as extras in the road-house scene.
  • Concerning what he liked about this film, director John Huston noted that: "It was the first time, I believe, that a black character was presented as anything other than a good and faithful servant or comic relief."
  • Describing the film's star, Huston said, "Bette Davis fascinated me. There is something elemental about Bette -- a demon within her which threatens to break out and eat everybody, beginning with their ears. The studio was afraid of her."
  • There is a computer-colored version of this film.
