    Some things are lost in translating Hellman's play to the screen (inevitable I suppose) but Davis is perfection.

    A great play and an even better film thanks to Bette Davis. It may be a bit dated but it is a classic tale of corruption and greed that is relevant to today's audience. Davis naturally is the stand out as the Foxes' matriarch.

    This is no doubt Bette Davis is an inimitable force when it comes to dramatic acting, but the story of a poisoned family clan fighting over money and female empowerment just doesn't interest me that much. Watch this movie for the performances, but this is neither Davis's or Wyler's best film.

    I actually found this movie version a tad more interesting than the play version that I saw. They added a love interest for the young daughter and he was a goof which lightened the mood at times with some comedy.
