Feuding Couples

A really great Hollywood script always has sexual tension between the characters in a film – it’s just part of the box office (and television) formula – because we are all experiencing the same feelings. Maybe not to the extent of some movies or programs, but nevertheless, we can all relate to the “battle of the sexes.”

MovieZoot.com explores this tension by featuring four films from our archives that exhibit this tension to new levels as we present, Bette Davis and Gary Merrill in Another Man’s Poison, Richard Thomas and Tess Harper in Death in Small Doses, Marlene Dietrich and Emil Jannings in The Blue Angel, and Bette Davis and Leslie Howard in Of Human Bondage.

If you are single, these movies help remind you why you are!
