Forgotten Movies: THE LETTER
Hard to beat this opening, first the lovely panning shot, establishing the setting, and then boom. I don't know why I never saw this one before. Well, I am not a Better Davis fan, I guess that's why. But she nails this one as do the other players, the director, all of them.
Based on a W. Somerset Maugham novel, this is the story of a murder and the question is: will Bette Davis bat her eyes enough to get away with it with so many men to protect her. Well worth your time. And a humdinger ending.
