Stars: Bette Davis, Leslie Howard, Frances Dee

Of Human Bondage is a classic drama at its best. Based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham, Bette Davis plays a cockney cruel waitress as only she could! Considered to be the best filming of W. Somerset Maugham’s poignant novel, the film tells of the ill-fated romance between a well-to-do club-footed medical student and a vulgar waitress.

Sensitive, club-footed artist Philip Carey is a Briton who has been studying painting in Paris for four years. His art teacher tells him his work lacks talent, so he returns to London to become a medical doctor, but his moodiness and chronic self-doubt make it difficult for him to keep up in his schoolwork.

Philip falls passionately in love with vulgar tearoom waitress Mildred Rogers, even though she is disdainful of his club foot and his obvious interest in her. Although he is attracted to the anemic and pale-faced woman, she is manipulative and cruel toward him

Bette Davis as the cockney cruel waitress wins yet another magnificent interpretation with an alluring and smoldering role. She is absolutely hypnotic in her account of the bondage, a sadomasochist relationship that occurs from the beginning to the end.

The DVD quality for Of Human Bondage is typical of movies from 1934 and the story and acting are brilliant.
