  • Wyler and the esteemed cinematographer [Gregg Toland] craft some fabulously arresting compositions, staging in great depth and detail, making the most of the Louisiana locations and the Goldwyn Studio sets, which were decorated by nine-time Oscar nominee Howard Bristol, with art direction by Stephen Goosson.

  • The following year’s The Little Foxes (1941) was a miserable experience for both actress and director, as Davis refused to alter her playing of viperous Regina Giddens, insisting that the way Tallulah Bankhead had played Regina onstage was the only way to interpret the part. In the end, Davis’s way works extremely well, but the beauty of cinematographer Gregg Toland’s work is the true draw.
