NOW ON DVD EXCLUSIVELY FROM WARNERARCHIVE.COM IN A REMASTERED EDITION!!

THE single most classic scene from 1946s A STOLEN LIFE, the enormously successful noir-flavored melodrama in which Miss Bette Davis plays feuding New England twins in love with the same man (Glenn Ford).

Directed by the great Curtis Bernhardt, who would later direct Joan Crawford to an Academy Award nomination in 1947s POSSESSED and Bette Davis once more in the gem PAYMENT ON DEMAND, A STOLEN LIFE was the last bona fide box-office blockbuster of Bette Daviss reign as the Queen of Warner Bros. It is also notable as the only film that she ever produced, for her Warner Bros. production company B.D. Inc, and would have been the first of five planned productions had fate not had a different future in store for Miss Daviss film career. Although it failed to earn her a deserved Academy Award nomination at the time and remains unreleased on DVD, A STOLEN LIFE is one of the most essential and thoroughly entertaining of all Bette Davis films and proof positive that her creative genius would have taken viewers to wonderful new places if she had continued to evolve as a producer.
I hope you will enjoy this highlight from a bona fide 1940s classic and one of Bette Davis's most delicious cinematic treats.

VIVA LA BETTE!
