Nobody can plan a crime like a mystery writer!
Bette Davis, in her first film since the classic All About Eve, is an unscrupulous man-killing - in more ways than one - novelist. Her estranged, no-good husband shows up unexpectedly on the lam from a botched crime, and his angry partner follows a short time later. What's a gal to do except play rough?
Anthony Rank, Emlyn Williams, and Bette's real-life husband Gary Merrill co-star in this forgotten classic produced in England and directed by Irving Rapper, most famous for previously directing Miss Davis in Now, Voyager (1942).
Thanks to our friends at ClassicFlix, we're presenting Another Man's Poison in fully restored and remastered condition - in the miracle of HIGH DEFINITION!
