Six years after exploding to stardom in "Of Human Bondage," Bette Davis equalled that excitement with another W. Somerset Maugham role as an adulteress using her sexual wiles to escape a murder conviction in "The Letter." The film throbs with sultry tension thanks to Davis, an impeccable supporting cast, atmospheric cinematography and the artistry of three-time Academy Award(R) winner William Wyler, Davis' director on "Jezebel" and "The Little Foxes." Nominated for seven Oscars(R) including Best Picture, Actress, Director and Supporting Actor (James Stephenson, superb as the anguished defense attorney), "The Letter" remains one of Hollywood's most special deliveries, a peerless example of melodrama as movie art.
