Winter Meeting Reviews
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.
They soon fall in love and Susan finally feels ready to take Slick to her childhood house, where lots of painfull memories are left.
Slick convinces Susan to tell him all her painfull memories that are stucked in her mind, and then we got to know that Susan hated her mother passionately, and blamed her for being the cause that her father went insane and ultimately died, cause she never cared for either Susan or Susan's father and left him with some other guy.
To Susan's suprise Slick didn't take Susan's side, but gently asked her why she couldn't forgive her mother.
The film took an interesting turn, and Slick told her later that he had always wanted to be a priest.
A really good movie, with a strong ending. I certainly recommend this to all the Bette Davis-fans like me, out there!
