New and beautiful restoration. In her first role since starring as Margo Channing in the Academy Award®-winning All About Eve (Best Picture, 1950), Bette Davis plays mystery writer Janet Frobisher, a cold and conniving woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants -- and what she wants at the moment is her secretary’s fiancé Larry (Anthony Steel). But Janet’s plan hits a snag when her estranged husband shows up unannounced after attempting to rob a bank. Her husband’s partner in crime, George (played by real-life husband Gary Merrill), further complicates matters for Janet when he pays her a visit later the same day. Getting rid of one of them proved easy. The other, not so much. Filmed in England and co-produced by Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Another Man’s Poison presents the dynamic Bette Davis at her devious and beguiling best.
