| Perhaps not Marion's best - but definitely NOT Susan Alexander!
While Marianne is not Marion Davies' best effort, it does contain some delightful moments where she absolutely sparkles. Granted her accent isn't all it should be, but give her a break - it was, after all, her very first talkie and her main focus was on conquering her stammer.

I'm not one to normally write reviews, but I just had to remark upon a previous reviewer (niro's) comments. To say that Welles and Mankewicz got it "right" when they fashioned Susan Alexander after Marion is incorrect and just plain mean. Even Welles, in his foreword to Marion's memoir, apologized for making this parallel, saying "To Marion Davies (Susan Alexander) bears no resemblance at all." Reviewer niro also errs regarding the brilliant documentary "Captured on Film" - this outstanding film contains NO inconsequential interviews - with or without "fans". Furthermore, it isn't Joseph Cotten's character who searches to find the meaning of Rosebud, but an off-camera interviewer whom we never see. Tell me, niro, have you ever even seen Citizen Kane OR Marianne?
