My Old Addiction

Mr. Skeffington


(out of 5)

As with many similar soap opera films in which  appeared, this one provides her with a magnificently juicy role while being in itself a grand bore. She plays a society bitch who mistreats everyone for decades (thanks to very impressive ageing makeup) until she finally gets the chance to make good.   plays her husband, the title character, who is owed the most remonstration for her evil deeds. Oh well, so what if she’s mean, she’s more fun to watch than the rest of the dry characters in this undercooked costume drama.
