"The Old Maid" is a great movie in every aspect, though maybe not a masterpiece, but who needs them anyway? I suppose you know about that "other" feud between Davis and Hopkins. The latter was an even bigger b¡tch than Crawford in a bad hair day, Davis told in her memories that she constantly tried to boycott her performance and used every knowledge of the profession that she had to make her look, act and walk worse. It´s a fantastic read, though I´m not sure if she said it about this one or "Old Acquaintance", another underrated and highly entertaining movie, also with Miriam Hopbeech. Oh and have noticed that Miriam has a certain resemblance with one of our most beloved soap divas... Of course, Joannie has never (and never will) aged a year since "Knots"... About "Deception", wow...it´s delicatessen. Not "The Little Wolves" but, as I said, who needs copycats of other films (aside from today´s producers)? It´s superbly photographed, flawless played and written, and it features the best actors Warner ever had (if Ms. Crawford who is in the Wire-less Heaven allows...): Bette, Claude Rains and Paul Henreid, who was such a handsome man...Oh and the movie has an amazing staircase scene!!! Not to be missed!!
