From a politically left leaning Lillian Hellman penned novel-turned-film THE LITTLE FOXES (1941) is a hidden triumph of Hollywood. A harsh, desperate look at a family living in the deep south circa 1900 plagued by deceit, greed and selfishness. Master director William Wyler once again crafts an engaging cinematic gem with an all-star cast and powerful themes. Bette Davis portrayed one of the most despicable roles of her career. Teresa Wright plays her daughter, who, as the saving grace of the film, is able to distinguish her villainous mothers traits and seeks to distance herself before she too is caught up in its cancerous influences. Masterpiece is appropriate to describe the subtle interplay or character traits, many of whom are likeable until their hidden agenda is determined. Add into this mix, the extraordinary deep-focus cinematography of Gregg Toland and you have a film worthy of multiple repeat viewings.
