Chicago Reader review:
Repressed spinster Bette Davis awakens to the joys of life and Paul Henreid in Irving Rapper's classic 1942 study in schmaltz. Not great filmmaking, but indispensable to students of 40s pop culture. This is the one in which Henreid lights two cigarettes at once, a show of dexterity that his subsequent career never equaled. The aggressive score is by Max Steiner; with Claude Rains, Gladys Cooper, Bonita Granville, and John Loder.
Here (and above) is an extract.
