As if Hayward and Davis weren't enough, check out the set and costume design. The Hayward and Mannix's mod '60s home is truly spectacular--it's like the Brady Bunch won the lottery. And look at the use of color.Read more ›
Here, Susan Hayward plays the role of a wealthy, award winning sculptoress, who is a wild thing, wayward and sexually promiscuous, as her sexuality is the only thing that her domineering mother cannot control. One day, she meets a war hero, engagingly played by Michael Mannix, and falls in love with him, when he stands up to her controlling and manipulative, hoity toity, high society mother, a role that Bette Davis fiendishly defines.
They marry and have high hopes, but Bette is always in the wings, controlling, manipulating, and in the end, getting her way, despites the war hero's best intentions. This causes him to become a drunk and for his wife to play around. They manage to have a child, a daughter, but even this is not enough to make them stay together. The mother arranges a divorce for her daughter with the proviso that he have nothing to do with their child.
Time passes, and the scultoress goes on to become highly acclaimed, much of that acclaim bought by her mother, unbeknownst to her. She also continues to have her bevy of lovers. One night, the long lost father, now a highly successful architect, is summoned, as his now teenage daughter, played with baby doll nuances by the very nubile Joey Heatherton, has been accused of murdering her mother's lover. All together after many years, the generations are in conflict as to how the matter can best be resolved. Common sense and decency prevail in the end.Read more ›
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.
