Could make a crow blush
31 October 2013 | by Archbishop_LaudSee all my reviews

I think this is worth seeing just for Bette Davis. The episode is all about her, she never leaves the frame, and much of the time she is alone, talking to her dog. Much of her appeal wasn't so much her acting as it was the way she carries herself and (of course) the way she enunciates.

But here, Davis does a good job establishing her character in a short time frame. She's upper class, educated ("Shall I listen to a Brahms Intermezzo or a Haydn Quartet tonight?" -- I'd go with Haydn myself). She's clearly repelled by the working class doorman, but doesn't overdo it as many actresses would.

The story itself is tense not so much for the plot, but for those awkward scenes of personal confrontation.
