The Letter

A better-than-average Bette Davis vehicle (1940), well constructed by that shrewd old hack, William Wyler, from a Somerset Maugham play. Davis, the bored wife of a rubber-plantation owner (Herbert Marshall, which will excuse anything), kills her lover, and the colonialists band together to get her off. Mustn't give the natives the wrong idea. Howard Koch wrote the dialogue, a dry run for Casablanca. With James Stephenson and Gale Sondergaard.
