The Man Who Came to Dinner (1941) Film Review

The Man Who Came to Dinner
DIRECTOR: William Keighley
BOTTOM LINE:  Monty Wooley delights himself and his audience by playing the impossibly pompous Sheridan Whiteside in William Keighley’s wonderful 1941 adaptation of George Kauffman/ Moss Hart’s play “The Man Who Came to Dinner”. The character of Whiteside is based on the playwrights’ good friend, the theatre critic Alexander Woollcott. Bette Davis is perfection playing his long-suffering yet understanding secretary. It’s one of her few comedic roles and it makes you wonder why she didn’t do more.
