I am not 100 percent, healthwise, not even 50 percent healthwise, I decided to work out indoors while watching a video of one of my all-time favorite movies, Beyond the Forest (1949).
It was the film best remembered as Bette Davis' worst, and she always talked about how bad it was. It is also remembered for the immortal line, "what a dump," which should have been her epitaph.
Sure it's bad, but it's one of the those bad movies that's so enjoyable. In fact, I regard it as Davis' most entertaining film.
From the prologue:
This is the story of evil. Evil is headstrong - is puffed up. For our soul's sake, it is salutory for us to view it in all its ugly nakedness once in a while. Thus may we know how those who deliver themselves over to it end up like the Scorpion, in a mad frenzy stinging themselves to eternal death.
... to the ending of the film, which rivals the end of Duel in the Sun as one of the most ridiculous, it's a hoot.
One thing you can say about director King Vidor: In the late 1940s he was a triple crown winner and never had to go near a racetrack to do it. He scored with three of the worst movies ever made: Duel in the Sun (1946), The Fountainhead (1949), and Beyond the Forest (1949). The first two films were deliriously awful, but they didn't have Bette Davis to chew up the scenery.
If you are so deprived you haven't seen the film, the plot can be read here and here. With the last link, though, the two paragraphs before the final paragraph are wrong. There's no abortion involved, although Davis' character does get rid of the baby.
