Movie Info

Not even considered a good film back in 1935, Dangerous is held together by the mesmerizing performance of Bette Davis. The star is cast as alcoholic, self-destructive stage actress Joyce Heath, a character obviously based on Jeanne Eagels. Wealthy architect Don Bellows (Franchot Tone) becomes convinced that Joyce can be rehabilitated with the "right" stage vehicle, and begins pulling strings to bring her back to the footlights. She rises to the occasion, falling in love with Don in the process.

Dangerous is a very good Bette Davis film. Bette won her 1st Oscar as Best Actress for her role in this film in 1935.

Bette plays a down on her luck actress whom has already seen her career at it's heights. A carrer now vanished due to her recklessness and all the horrible things that happened to her. She meets a wonderful architect that is just meeting his stardom played by the very talented Frenchot Tone. If you a fan of Bette Davis or like a good classis drama you will enjoy this film.

I know that Bette Davis is a classic actress that a lot of people love. This is the earliest movie of her's that I've seen. I really have not been impressed by her much though.
