Of Human Bondage (Cromwell, 1934): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6pm

This (now digital) presentation, also being screened on August 1st, is part of the Bette Davis season at BFI Southbank.

Chicago Reader review:
John Cromwell's 1934 version of Maugham's boring, lumpy novel is still by far the best one. Today, it's chiefly memorable as the movie that made Bette Davis a star—and that's enough for any film. With the great Leslie Howard.
Don Druker

Here (and above) is an extract.
