"The Little Foxes" (1941)

Bette Davis stole the plum Broadway role of venal Regina Giddons from Talullah Bankhead for this movie version. No matter, Lillian Hellman's play of a morally corrupt Southern family is slightly softened but still packs a whallup, due mainly to William Wyler's expert direction and Greg Toland's amazing deep focus cinematography. A handsome production that includes smarmy Dan Duryea and the lovely (as always) Teresa Wright.
