Bette Davis and Susan Haywrd are involved in what is a Hollywood re-telling of the Lana Turner Johnny Stomponato affair and his subsequent murder by Lana's daughter. This film is filled with Bette Davis, raging all over the screen at Susan because she has no taste in men or art. Bette has wonderful scenes where she brandishes her wit and her scathing vocal intonations that level all people in her sight.
Susan is great and has a fabulous wardrobe to go with her usual pathos driven style that makes all her films memorable.
The rest of the cast is not up to the standards of these two, and Joey Heatherton as the murdering daughter is plain bad, but who cares? You have Bette to tell her off, and Susan to correct her.
This Harold Robbins trash is served up on a gold platter by Bette and Susan, who want you to have fun all the way. Buy this film and enjoy, especaillly the ending. Unforgettable! and catch those last lines of Bette's about Susan! Also, watch for a very strange cameo by Jane Greer(she was a film noir moll for Robert Mitchum in the 40's and early 50's, and her career was destroyed by H. Hughes) as a social worker for Heatherton, who has some of the most Puritanical things to say about adultery to Hawyard this side of Salem, Massachusetts.
