What Stanley Timberlake wants, she takes. So, on the eve of her marriage to another, she runs off with her sister's husband, the first of many betrayals that lead to disaster...and to a compulsively watchable brew of deceit, racial bigotry, latent incest and violent death.
Ahead of its time
- In This Our Life review by areavie
This film has to be your ultimate crime drama, centring around a hit-and-run case and all the stigma that surrounds it in the early part of the century. Classic Davis plays the spoiled floosy who winds people around her little finger to get what she wants.
She pretty much succeeds too, with an ex-lover as an attorney and a rich influential uncle. A little persecution where she tries to shift blame for the offence to another person.
