A shamefully neglected masterpiece
Mr. Skeffington film I was 11 years old when Mr Skeffington was released in England. Maybe because we were fighting Hitler and hearing of his barbarities, the ending really affected me. But I loved the whole film. I was not a Bette Davis fan but I loved Claude Rains and Walter Abel and I thought their performances were superb. And I had to admit so was Bette. The way the film chronicled her life from emptyheaded flirty flapper through the unpleasant truths of growing older to terrified old age was masterly. Her scene with George Coulouris makes me laugh every time I think of it, especially his final crack that she would be impressed when she got his bill. I thought Claude Rains should have got an Oscar but he was another of those actors who got many nominations but never the statue. Shame. The film has its faults, what film doesnt, but overall I loved every minute of it, and Franz Waxman's score was the icing on the cake. I may be in a minority, but Mr Skeffington is in my list of 10 favourite movies, along with Casablanca, Laura and Sunset Boulevard. It's all a matter of taste I know, but Gone with the Wind and a load of other blockbusters you can keep I'd prefer to sit through Mr Skeffington any day just for the first class acting and happy memories it brings back.

FANTASTIC
This movie is one of the greatest ever made and so very hard to find. I have been looking for years. This film shows how beauty is only skin deep and love lasts forever.

Wonderful!
This is one of the greatest movies ever made. I have looked all over for this DVD and finally found it. Bravo. I cried my eyes out at the ending. Too bad Hollywood cannot make movies of this calibur anylonger. There is no raw sex scene, nor filthy language, yet this movie will invigorate your brain and break your heart!
