OF HUMAN BONDAGE (1946)

Stardust and Shadows Posted by Terry on Jul 3, 2019

The story OF HUMAN BONDAGE has become like A STAR IS BORN, that is, being filmed many times with different effects on the audience and box office.  Studios loved to put actors into roles that are ‘star making,’ hoping the magic will occur again.  Such  would be the case with Paul Henrei read more

Bette Davis breaks the wall in Of Human Bondage (John Cromwell, 1934)

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Apr 5, 2019

Bette Davis was among the first classic actresses to be introduced to me. I remember thinking she was the most badass person ever in All About Eve. So, overall, she did a good first impression. Then, I had this weird “I don’t like Bette Davis so much period” which, luckily, didn&# read more

Pretty Clever Films Posted by Brandy Dean on Nov 14, 2013

Of Human Bondage is the movie that signaled Bette Davis was more than one more (slightly funny looking) face in a row of Hollywood hopefuls. Her portrayal of Mildred Rogers, a waitress turned seductress turned adulterer turned unwed mother turned prostitute set a kind of template for the not so kin read more

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Jun 28, 2013

Of Human Bondage is a frustrating, well-acted adaptation of the novel by W. Somerset Maugham.  The acting, and the entire narrative is pompous and overwrought, but said performances are surprising.  Bette Davis sizzles as the downtrodden succubus while Leslie Howard proved to me he isn’t a tal read more

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 6, 2012

Based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage (1934) is the film that made Bette Davis a star, and it's easy enough to see why. Her portrayal of the morally bankrupt Mildred Rogers dominates the picture, despite the fact that Leslie Howard's character is technically the protagonist. Fe read more

Of Human Bondage (1934)      Bette Davis had not been on the Hollywood scene long before making the first of three incarnations of the adaptation of Somerset Maugham’s novel Of Human Bondage. She was sporting the platinum blonde hair she affected at the start of career to take on the look read more

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Sep 7, 2008

I watched this soon after The Petrified Forest, also starring Bette Davis and Leslie Howard – but the two movies couldn’t very well have been more different. About the only similarity is that Davis plays a waitress in both, but the fiery “bad girl”, Mildred, who she portrays in this movie, filmed read more
