Christmas at Electric Palace!
The Man Who Came to Dinner
Bette Davis flexes her comedy muscles in this clever adaptation of a Broadway play.
Director: William Keighley
Cast includes: Bette Davis, Ann SheRidan, Monty Woolley ,
116 Min / 1942 / USA
This is a feast of wit and sophistication, and stars a shining Bette Davis.
Famed author Sheridan Whiteside possesses a tongue dipped in venom and a brain that can crack The New York Times crossword in four minutes. On a lecture tour in Ohio, he slips on the ice and is confined to the home of a bourgeois couple. He proceeds to plunge the household into chaos, ruling the place like a czar and meddling in everyone's love life. Davis plays his unflappable secretary. Monty Woolley reprises his Broadway triumph as the imperious Whiteside in this delightful, lightning-paced farce. A who's who of Hollywood talents portray a who's who of thinly veiled real-life luminaries, ranging from Gertrude Lawrence to Harpo Marx.
