Audience Reviews for Winter Meeting


This movie is terrific. I usually like the independent Bette Davis, but the guy who plays opposite her is a (Fess Parker, of TV Davy Crocket fame) total wipeout as an actor. Bette Davis had to have been horrified to play opposite this guy. Maybe he was a last minute replacement for someone better, or he was a great friend of the casting manager, who knows? But he is less than persuasive, unless as playing a returning naval veteran he is supposed to be stiff and wooden. In that case, he did a great job of acting! But I don't think so. If the movie had been better cast for his role, I would have given it a 100. Even so, you simply won't know where this movie is going until the very end. He isn't the one with issues.... it's HER, as she discovers at the very end.

A little stilted but not nearly as bad as its reputation, just a bit slow.
