A great old New Orleans movie. The lead character is quite similar to Scarlet O'Hara, though this one really lives up to the name Jezebel.

Often considered something of a consolation prize for losing out on Gone With the Wind, Jezebel actually has its own merits and charms. Chief among them is the central performance by Bette Davis in which she gets to be both wild and meek. The film is often talked about in the same breath as that Hollywood epic, but it’s an entirely different beast. The similarities are only superficial, really.<... read more

Jezebel is a wonderful Melodrama set in the late 1800's new orleans, where ladies where to follow strict social codes, and must act accordingly. Julie Marsden does not like rules, and goes about breaking the rules and ends up breaking the heart of the man she loves. Bette Davis plays her usualy strong stubborn role, Henry Fonda plays Preston Dillard Bette's love interest. Henry does a fantastic jo... read more

Set in antebellum New Orleans during the early 1850's, this film follows Julie Marsden through her quest for social redemption on her own terms.

Julie Marsden does not like rules, and goes about breaking the rules and ends up breaking the heart of the man she loves.

Jezebel is a classic film, and a great Bette Davis film.” read more

"18.5.2011 Vahva kuvaus vanhasta etelästä ja sen elämäntavasta, joka on hitaasti mutta varmasti tulossa tiensä päähän. Bette Davis on kerrassaan lumoava roolissaan tuittupääkaunottarena. Davis jättää muut, alkaen Henry Fondasta, vääjämättä varjoonsa. Toki roolin luonteella on osuutensa asiassa. "

“Often considered something of a consolation prize for losing out on Gone With the Wind, Jezebel actually has its own merits and charms.

The film is often talked about in the same breath as that Hollywood epic, but it’s an entirely different beast. The similarities are only superficial, really.

Jezebel tells the story of Julie, a headstrong but easily broken southern belle during the Antebellum period. Her selfish choices and too-late actions cause her to lose her life-long love, Preston Dillard (Henry Fonda), to a Yankee. And it all ends with an outbreak of yellow fever. Equal parts romantic melodrama and period piece costume pageantry, Jezebel is an elegant production with co” read more
