Born to be Bad

Innocent and sweet on the outside, Christabel is a conniving liar who'll do anything to anyone for her own gain.

    Comments about Born to be Bad:

    This is GREAT film noir, Joan Fontaine invaded
    Bette Davis' territory! She gave a tour de force
    performance worthy of another Oscar ! From the
    cover design down to all the supporting characters'
    performances, this DVD would be a GREAT addition
    to your collection!

    Enjoyable movie with two endings

    Comments about Born to be Bad:

    This is my first buy of a movie on demand product. I am entirely pleased with the quality of transfer on both picture and sound.The best feature of this DVD-R is the alternate ending as a special feature. I think it is better than the official studio ending.

    " THE FEMALE ANIMAL "

    Comments about Born to be Bad:

    The print is beautiful, only some minor issue: some white specks, and a few bad frames. The audio track is clean and clear. Very Good contrast, Sharp 'image', and quite good Black.
    So very watchable print.

    Bonus: Alternate ending 14mns.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    This film was ok due to cast and subject, but could have been much better if it didn't need to be so hampered by the censorship in place at the time.

      Comments about Born to be Bad:

      Joan Fontaine in a rare "bad girl" performance, showcasing the range and versatility of this remarkable Hollywood actress. As a bonus, it's a chance to look at an early Nicholas Ray film, before most of the films for which he is best known were made. An intriguing and frequently dark story about a woman who is interested in any man as long as he belongs to someone else, the film is compelling most of the way but turns head-scratchingly light at the end. Warner has obligingly included the original (and better) ending as an "alternate ending." Enjoyable, especially for those who love Fontaine as I do, and for Nick Ray or Robert Ryan completists.

        Comments about Born to be Bad:

        f you like femme fatales you'll love this movie!

        Joan Fontaine plays Christabel Caine, a beautiful and innocent looking young thing who turns out to be a narcissistic man-eater who thinks nothing of stealing her cousin's rich fiance. And then - what's worse - ok, first she's with this guy Nick, and she cheats on him with the cousin's rich fiance, right? So then she gets the rich fiance to marry her, instead, and then she turns around and cheats on him with the guy she cheated on in the first place. (Try to figure that one out while you wait for your movie to arrive in the mail.)

        I received a copy of this movie for review and would rate it's overall quality as very good. I was so "into" the movie that I didn't pay any attention to anything else. No issues with sound or picture quality, it was attention grabbing all the way.
