Mr. Skeffington 

3/4 stars

Bette Davis and Claude Rains play Fanny and Job Skeffington a most unlikely couple in this romantic drama, namely because they marry in the film more out of ulterior reasons than genuine affection. Fanny the shallow socialite while Job is the patient spouse and neither is fooling themselves about the state of their loveless though convenient marriage.
Spanning from genteel 1914 to the grim Second World War, external forces and personal struggles merge to further draw them together. Bette Davis excelled at playing unlikable leading ladies and Fanny is nothing short of vapid and selfish a lot of the time. Claude Rains is respectful and classy as always.
