“Only Bette Davis…could have combated so successfully the obvious intention of the adaptors of the play to make frustrated sex the mainspring of the plot,” observed Picture Post.

Ms. Davis gives a compelling performance, as does the rest of the cast. The movie is a wonderful portrayal of the relationship that has formed between a very special teacher and a gifted student, who, but for that teacher, may never have realized his potential. Ms. Davis always plays strong, stalwart women with a cutting edge to them, and in this role she plays true to form. She is absolutely magnificent. John Dall is superb as the coltish Morgan Evans. Nigel Bruce is perfect as the pompous, but kindly, local squire who is manipulated by Ms. Moffat to sponsor Morgan in his bid for Oxford. Joan Lorring is wonderful as the sly and lascivious cockney girl, Bettie Watty, who almost derails Morgan's future when she become pregnant with his child. Rosalind Ivan is marvelous as Bessie's mother, Mrs. Watty. Rhys Williams and Mildred Dunnock are superlative in their roles of the assistant school teachers, Mr. Jones and Ms. Ronberry. This is truly a movie well worth having in one's collection.
