1. Tony, I am ashamed to admit that I still have not watched SATAN MET A LADY, though I know well of the film’s reputation and status as the first in this rather iconic series. I am of course an impassioned fan of Davis, and am not at all surprised at your touting her highly here. I’ll have to give this a look see ASAP. In any event, I concur with your generally glowing regard for the Del Ruth version, the excellent work by Ricardo Cortez and the sex appeal of Ms. Daniels in the era when films were refreshingly candid. Of course, as you rightly note, this film and its predecessor are miles behind the Huston masterpiece, in their own right they offered up quality presentations. Once again you master the art of the capsule here!
