Bette Davis, Herbert Marshall, Teresa Wright,Richard Carlson, Dan Duryea 

Grim, malignant, vicious, sinister and cruel, based on Lillian Hellman’s dark melodrama that Tallulah Bankhead had made famous on Broadway. Bette Davis (and an expert ensemble cast) took it even further on film. One contemporary critic summed it up perfectly, along with the pleasures it affords: “The Little Foxes will not increase your admiration for mankind. It is cold and cynical. But it is a very exciting picture to watch in a comfortably objective way, especially if you enjoy expert stabbing-in-the-back.”
