Of Human Bondage

Directors: John Cromwell
Cast: Bette Davis, Leslie Howard, Kay Johnson, Reginald Denny, Francis Dee, Una O’Connor  Genre: Drama, Romance  Year: 1934 Length: 83M  Color/B&W: B&W
Origin: USA
Synopsis:A tragic tale of a crippled young man looking for love. Davis in her first great screen role, a performance that is still among her best. Based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham. This is the famous original film version that electrified the world. Set at the turn of the century, it tells the story of the tragic passion of a crippled young doctor and a lowbrow Cockney waitress. She rejects him only to use him when she is in need, moving in and out of his life at her convenience. Howard gives one of the performances for which he had become known–vulnerable, quiet and sensitive. Extremely well-acted and directed, this tragic tale remains a powerful, gripping emotional experience. Of Bette Davis’ portrayal of the nasty and spiteful Mildred, Life Magazine has said, “Probably the best performance ever recorded on screen by a U.S. actress”.
