A superlative, juicy mother-daughter melodrama with top notch performance from Bette Davis, at the top of her form, and the rest of the cast.

Compulsively watchable four-hankie weepie.

...romantic and romanticized, sudsy and sentimental...a throwback to an earlier age in Hollywood when movies didn't have to be loud or vulgar to sell a point.
