    Curiously, Of Human Bondage was unsuccessful in 1934. The criticisms were mixed about the film. The public didn't tolerate the way the waitress Mildred (Bette Davis) had infuriated the young medical student Philip (Leslie Howard). In between the lines the moralistic discourse is evident: educated males should not be involved emotionally with vulgar females and without cradle. Several RKO Radio Pictures stars declined to play Midred. However, Bette Davis's performance was highly praised and she was elevated to star status, not beauty, for the appearance of the waitress was sloppy, but for the talent. The absence of Bette in the nominations for the Oscar of better actress generated protests. The compensation came the following year, when she received the award for a performance that neither she liked in Dangerous. When Of Human Bondage went into production Bette was hired by Warner and was not satisfied with the production system, which didn't always give priority to quality. The actors participated in one production after another, and sometimes up to two at the same time. This was because the studios had to feed the movie circuits, all week, with new tapes. As everyone knows, there was no television and the most accessible entertainment was the movies. Bette starred in 22 films before Of Human Bondage. She had good roles in The Cabin in the Cotton, 20,000 Years in Sing Sing and The Working Man, but was not so lucky in other jobs. To be part of the cast of Of Human Bondage, Bette still had to participate in Fog Over Frisco, in which her character is murdered and disappears before the story ends. In 1934, the actress had already acted for Warner in Fashions of 1934 and Jimmy the Gent. Soon after Of Human Bondage, did, also, in the same year, Housewife.

  • How could he love the bette davis character so much after she treated him so badly and the other ladies in his life were so beautiful and treated him so well.

  • She looked beautiful although she was playing a low class waitress. Her vulgar clothes were not an obstacle too see her inner beauty.

  • Back then women were perceived less than men.
    Today women force men to perceive themsepves less than women.
    But neither men nor women are above each other,.
    only a superior personality regardless of your gender is human.
