Movie queen Margaret Elliot's popularity and fortune have gone bad. But she's sure she can jump-start her dimming career. "One good picture is all I need," she says.
As Margaret, Bette Davis got yet another good picture and earned her ninth Academy Award nomination. Davis' confident, perceptive performance lends absolute authenticity, as did a prop she provided. An Oscar statuette—set noticeably on the car dashboard during Margaret's drunken spin through Beverly Hills—was one of two Davis owned.
Sterling Hayden and Natalie Wood co-star in this gripping story that has "many moments of truth" (Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide).
