Have you ever wanted to see Bette Davis upstaged?
on 8 April 2009
What a wonderful comedy this is, although this has Bette Davis in there can only be one true star of this film and that's Monty Woolley, he's just superb in this role and is clearly revels in the lead role, he's not given top billing for some reason, but he should have.
This is basically a wild, weird and wonderful comedy, Sheridan Whiteside (Monty Woolley) is basically the man who's coming to dinner to cause havoc with the members of the house he's visiting.
You could say that there's no great plot here, but to be honest there's no great need as there are laughs aplenty in the mad situation comedy that ensues which even has a supporting cast of penguins in it!!
I managed to watch all of this film on a sharing network and knew that I would buy it just from watching the first 10 minutes and I'll be ordering this later today, a joy to watch from start to finish, this kind of film is the reason why people say 'they don't make like this anymore', if you enjoy films like Bringing up baby, then I'm sure you'll like this too, but this is not a romantic comedy.
