(1941) Engrossing adaptation of Lillian Hellman's play about a woman (Bette Davis) and her two brothers (Charles Dingle and Carl Benton Reid) who conspire to get the money needed for a business deal from her estranged but wealthy, seriously ill husband (Herbert Marshall). Directed by William Wyler and strikingly photographed by Gregg Toland, the post-Civil War drama centers on the Southern family's conniving among themselves and ultimately against each other, with Davis memorable as the shrewd, conscienceless wife. Fascinating portrait of self-defeating greed. (A-II -- adults and adolescents). TCM (cable)
