Example text

His nonsense about "theatre" is saved by one performance that is the real thing: Bette Davis is at her most instinctive and assured. Her actress-vain, scared, a woman who goes too far in her reactions and emotionsmakes the whole thing come alive (though it's hard to believe Anne Baxter could ever be a threat to Bette Davis).

It's easily distinguishable from other Wayne Westerns: Gail Russell, of the sexy-sad eyes, is the Quaker heroine-one of the few Western heroines who suggests softness and body warmth.
