stuck on you
ready for a character without one shred of decency? bette davis played her role in 'of human bondage' like her life depended on it. she did not receive an oscar but she won the gold statue the following year for a film i only ever watched once though i have watched 'of human bondage' countless times. leslie howard co-stars as a man in love beyond reason in this movie that overflows with talent, not the least of which is somerset maugham, the novelist whose book the film is based on.
