Mr. Skeffington

"OK"

Mr. Skeffington Review


A rather silly domestic drama, Mr. Skeffington has Bette Davis romancing her way through the first two World Wars, falling in and out of love with the title character (Claude Rains). Full of hair tearing and high society parlor angst, Skeffington is overlong and a bit trite, but Davis's wild transformation into "old lady" in the film's third act is truly harrowing.
