Golden Girls: Of Human Bondage (1934)

This week from Double Exposure comes the movie that made Bette Davis a star: Of Human Bondage. 

Based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage portrays a world in which human lives are inexplicably intertwined, for good and ill. Today the film is remembered mostly for the harrowing performance from the young Davis, who went from anonymous Hollywood actress to sensation, even earning herself an Write-In nomination for the Academy Awards. 

On the episode, Courtney and Chris discuss the life an unwed woman with a baby in the 30s, the power that hides in those Bette Davis eyes, and (obviously) The First Purge.
