The Old Maid

The Old MaidBBB.5

(out of 5)

Typical  soaper has the great actress giving birth to a child out of wedlock and having her married cousin () raise her to hide the scandal. Naturally, the child never suspects that her old maid aunt is really her mother, even though Davis dotes on her continually without reserve. This is one of those effective tearjerkers that my mother totally goes for, especially its memorably kitschy ending.
