Since I watched "Tullulah" I've been curious about the woman who will always be the original - Tullulah Bankhead. So, I read up on her and, although she was regarded as the greatest stage actress of the 20th Century, she has to her credit over 300 film, stage, television and radio roles. Of all her films I chose this one to sample her work. It won the New York Film Critics award in 1944, and when she received the award she exclaimed, "Dahlings, I was wonderful". She was! This film is a Hitchcock production of a John Steinbeck piece. It probably deserves more, but I give it a 7 (good) out of 10.
