Bette Davis and Joan Crawford by helitzur

Question 12

Davis struggled through much of her early career at Warner Bros. against the studio repeatedly assigning her to movies with sub-par scripts, although one notable exception was this 1936 adaptation of a Robert Sherwood play. It jump-started the Hollywood career of Humphrey Bogart, who had played the same role on stage, an escaped convict whose gang holds everyone hostage at a remote diner in the American southwest.
