Description
She was very lucky that Mr. Skeffington was such a gentleman!

Whose face - ravaged, grotesque - is in the mirror? Surely it's not that of Fanny Skeffington, the prettiest woman in New York. Fanny always used her beauty to manipulate her way through life. She's encouraged dozens of suitors, even after her marriage. But now diphtheria has robbed her of her only attribute. And without her looks, she's lost.

Bette Davis earned her eighth Best Actress Oscar® nomination portraying Fanny. Backed by Claude Rains as her devoted husband, glorious costumes and a lush Franz Waxman score, Davis takes what might in lesser hands be just a woman's picture and turns it into art. Watch her ruined face glow with an inner light when she find hope in the words: "A woman is beautiful when she's loved. And only then." Magic.

            A great Bette Davis film. She ages well in this film. She always loves her husband. It is a look back at life as Mrs. Skeffington. Bette Davis plays the role great.

                      When there is really nothing on television, I put in a movie and watch all the old ones I have. I love all the older movies, with James Cagney, George Raft, Edward G Robinson all the old ones I grew up watching with my Mom. I love TCM. Joan Crawford, Bette Davis all the older movie stars.

                          I love old movies. Bette Davis is one of my favorite to watch. Great movie! Some people are so concerned with getting old and how they look. This sums life up. Dvd did hesitate but then went on playing.

                                  THought i had ordered a comedy-although there was comedy there was also drama-sadness, anger, and grief. The whole range of emotions yet the movie was quite realistic for that time period and for certain types of people. Enjoyed it very much-oh, and a reasonably happy ending..........

                                    This story is basic and as old as time but with a happy ending so there's a lesson to be learned... I hope it never stops playing. Beautifully written and casted. It's one for the video library.

                                      I watched the movie first as it was intended to be shown. The second time with the Director's Commentary. The 'special features' were a treat as I hadn't expected them. You cannot get better than Bette Davis and Claude Rains. For 'movie buffs' AND 'newcomers' to the Golden Age of Cinema alike.
