A woman leaves a man steals her sister's husband, who slips into ruin; after his death, she aims for her sister's now-fiance, the man she originally left. With Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland as the sisters, one need to be a genius to know which is the sociopath. Top quality soapy melodrama, moody and captivating.
