5th of 9 movies of Bette Davis' in 1932
Married and single women alike are in love with Julian (George Brent). Bette Davis is the single one, Malbro. This is a complex drama about triangulated relationships. Some are forbidden. Others seem ideal but don't ever come to fruition. I like the role that Davis acts out because she's a true friend whose love for Julian isn't possessive or self-centered. She's a young woman who takes life in stride. Plus she's not involved with the adultery except to prevent a scandal over it. Then, she becomes the survivor of a tragic accident. Brent's the one who's fooling around with a married woman and eventually breaks up their marriage. This movie's very well acted, indeed.
When Always Doesn't Last Forever
Bette Davis & George Brent are among two of the main characters in the mix of a film about young adult couples struggling with their relationships. It's now quite intriguing to watch Davis & Brent acting together, no matter when or in what film since Davis wrote, in "This n That" that the two were lovers at one time & she was in love with him before he was with her. Anyway, since there's a tragedy towards the end of this film, the word 'always' is, as usual, improbable. Davis' & Brent's on screen chemistry is already apparent.
