Beyond the Forest

Beyond the Forest is a 1949 American film noir directed by King Vidor and featuring Bette Davis, Joseph Cotten, David Brian and Ruth Roman. The screenplay is written by Lenore J. Coffee based on a novel by Stuart Engstrand. The film marks Davis' last appearance as a contract actress for Warner, after eighteen years with the studio. She tried several times to walk away from the film, but Warner refused to release her from their employment contract. She remembered the project as "a terrible movie" and the death scene at her end in the film as "the longest death scene ever seen on the screen." ... more on Wikipedia
