It is a well documented fact that Jezebel is my favourite movie. Set in the 'Deep South' before the Civil War, wilful Bette Davis refuses to wear a white frock at the ball... Her stuffed shirt boyfriend Henry Fonda huffs and moves to the North. Bette pines for him until he returns - but the bugger comes back married!
Hell hath no fury like Bette Davis scorned and she unleashes the very worst of her wiles, inciting a duel and causing a riot...
I recently found the trailer on U Tube - I especially like the tag line - A woman who was loved when she should have been whipped - from that alone you can tell this movie was made in 1938!
