Audience Reviews for The Golden Arrow


Silly junk is harmless enough but one of the scripts that made Bette, by this point an Oscar winner, see red and walk out on her contract leading to her court fight with Warners and the beginning of her climb to becoming the fifth Warner brother and their top star.
