21 July 1999 | maharet-3
my first glance at bette davis' acting, I was hooked thereafter.
I was surfing the local tv networks,when I chance a glimpse at Bette Davis in this wonderful comedy, where she plays the assistant to an overbearing, yet amusing and inquisitive radio host who continuously is conspiring and interfering with the lives of those around him. "The Man Who Came to Dinner" was the first black and white movie that I was able to even watch, all due to the superb acting and extremely magnetic personality of Bette Davis. This film is definitely a must see. I became entranced with Bette Davis thereafter.
