Web Series Worth Watching: Tired Old Queen at the Movies revisits an Old Acquaintance
Web Series of the Week: Steve Hayes: Tired Old Queen at the Movies
The fabulous film critic starts the new year with one of my favorite Bette Davis movies, Old Acquaintance (1943), which tells the story of two friends (Bette and Miriam Hopkins) who support, love and battle each other over work, men, marriage and through World War II. As Mr. Hayes explains, the filming of Old Acquaintance was quite tense because its two stars couldn't stand one another - but it turned out to be one of the biggest hits of Bette's career. And it's worth watching just for the amusing scene in which Bette tries to shake some sense into Miriam. Also, the movie was remade in 1981 as Rich and Famous, one of my cinematic guilty pleasures starring Jacqueline Bisset and Candice Bergen.
