The Little Foxes Story Line. The ruthless, moneyed Hubbard clan lives and poisons their part of the deep South at the turn of the 20th century. Regina Giddens (née Hubbard) has her daughter under her thumb. Mrs. Giddens is estranged from her husband, who is convalescing in Baltimore and suffers from a terminal illness. But she needs him home, and will manipulate her daughter to help bring him back.
Mrs. Giddens has a sneaky business deal she’s cooking up with her two elder brothers, Oscar and Ben. Oscar has a flighty, unhappy wife and a dishonest worm of a son. Will the daughter have to marry this contemptible cousin? Who will she grow up to be – her mother or her aunt? Or can she escape the fate of both?
Tagline: …the film version of the stage hit, as the ruthless beauty whose ambition spelt the doom of three men
“The Little Foxes” is one of several masterpieces made by William Wyler. Definitely one of the best movies of all time. The riveting performance of Bette Davis will make you conscious of what a truly good actor can accomplish. Regina (Bette) and her covetous brothers made the biblical passage “the love of money is the root of all evil” come to life. “The Little Foxes” is an apt name. Regina, Horace and Oscar would tear others to pieces to get what they want. Eventually they turn on each other to gain satisfaction.
