Event Details

Of Human Bondage (1934)

In this celebrated Somerset Maugham tale, a sensitive medical student is obsessed with a selfish, scheming waitress.

Bette Davis' fierce, fearless portrayal of Mildred was a defining moment in her career.

"Mildred was the first leading-lady villainess ever played on a screen for real." Bette Davis.

"Davis makes her role work through sheer will; she doesn't let it happen, she makes it happen-and, boy, you'd better watch!" Pauline Kael.

With Leslie Howard, Bette Davis, Frances Dee, Kay Johnson, Reginald Denny, Alan Hale, Reginald Sheffield, Reginald Owen, Desmond Roberts.

Directed by John Cromwell. Produced by Pandro S. Berman. Screenplay by Lester Cohen, based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham. Photographed by Henry W. Gerrard. Music by Max Steiner. RKO. 83 minutes.
