A magnificent melodrama with Joan Crawford, Conrad Veidt, Melvyn Douglas and George Cukor at the top of their game, with a brilliant dialogue that assumes that you know the difference between quotes from the bible and Shakespeare, have some knowledge of Greek myths, know when the tongue is firmly placed in cheek, and appreciate innuenedo. Hollywood and its best. A pure delight!
