The film's success is wrapped around Davis' steely performance and the elegant production values

Jezebel is fascinating from a cinematic history perspective, but it's also a strong melodrama beyond the societal backdrops

Directed with taste and discretion by Wyler, the film has several poignant scenes, such as the one in which Henry Fonda ferociously forces Bette Davis to dance in her red dress, while staring down at anyone who appears critical of her code violation.

It would have tasted more like lemonade than a mint julep without Bette Davis' fiery performance.

The film is much more interesting for its traces of Davis' own future roles and images than for its decoy status as a GWTW consolation prize.

The overall slant of the entire movie is a sort of half-hearted indictment of the Old South's code of ethics that was rooted in slavery.

Jezebel (1938), a romantic melodrama with views of 1850s New Orleans ante-bellum society, was offered as compensation to film star Bette Davis

A tottering costume drama that gave Bette Davis one of her rare non-bitchy roles. It should come as little surprise that it doesn't quite work.
