Old Acquaintance (Sherman, 1943): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 5.40pm

This 35mm presentation, part of the Bette Davis season at BFI Southbank, is also being screened on August 22nd. Full details here.

BFI southbank introduction:
A successful writer (Bette Davis) and her childhood friend (Miriam Hopkins) find themselves at odds when the latter becomes a writer herself and creates an unhealthy rivalry between them that extends to their families and relationships. The real-life feud between Hollywood heavyweights Davis and Hopkins underpins the one on screen, and makes for compelling viewing.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
