...a bit of a slow boil, but this 1943 melodrama eventually bubbles over with Bette Davis literally trying to shake some sense into Miriam Hopkins.
Crowd pleasing women's pic.
How did I go so many years without someone telling me that I had to see "Old Acquaintance"? It's just a melodrama, but it's one of the best, most satisfying, and most unique that Bette Davis made in her heyday, the 1940s.
Davis plays a serious, high-minded novelist, and Miriam Hopkins plays a deliciously petulant, semi-educated, narcissistic writer of pulp fiction. The two have a life-long friendship with many ups and downs and subtle cross-currents of rivalry and devotion.
In the last half-hour, there are some surprising twists that had my head spinning. And the final message is to some degree a celebration of women remaining unmarried, which I loved. I had a rip-roaring good time watching this classic, and I'm sad that its reputation has faded over the years. It deserves to be better known.
Another film where the lead performance (Bette) is far stronger than the film itself. I am admiring her talent more and more. Loving her menswear inspired costumes!
bette & miriam are a hoot together!
