Abandoning artistic ambitions, sensitive and club-footed Philip Carey enrolls in medical school and falls in love with illiterate waitress Mildred Rogers. She rejects him, runs off with a salesman and returns unmarried and pregnant. Philip gets her an apartment and they become engaged. Mildred runs off with another medical student. Philip takes her back again when she returns with her baby. She wrecks his apartment and burns the securities he needs to pay tuition. He gets a job as a salesman, has surgery on his foot, receives an inheritance, and returns to school where he learns Mildred is dying. Written by Ed Stephan The clubfooted aspirant painter Philip Carey is advised by an acquaintance to give-up his artistic ambition since he is a mediocre artist. He joins the medical school in London using his inheritance to pay the school and to have a comfortable life. When he meets the cold cockney waitress Mildred Rogers in a restaurant, the shy Philip has a crush on her but she rejects him. Philip stalks her and dates her; however the easy woman scorns him. When Philip proposes Mildred, she tells him that she is going to marry her lover Miller, leaving the brokenhearted Philip obsessed for her. He tries to move on, dating the affectionate Norah in an unrequited love. However, when Mildred returns alone and pregnant, Philip lodges them in his home. Sooner Mildred becomes lover of Philip’s friend Reginald Denny and leaves Philip again. When Philip finds Mildred and her baby later abandoned on the street, he brings them home. Mildred unsuccessfully tries to seduce Philip but he loathes her; Mildred feels humiliated and wrecks his apartment and burns his savings, forcing Philip to quit the medical school. However his teacher offers to operate his feet first and Philip becomes a normal man. But he does not succeed to find a job and his life goes downhill fast until he meets a friend that helps him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Philip Carey is a medical student of limited means who is particularly self-conscious about his physical deformity, a club foot. When a fellow student wants to try and impress a waitress in a local restaurant, Philip goes along to show him how to make small talk with someone you’re attracted to. The woman in question is Mildred Rogers, an attractive girl who gets the attention of many customers, particularly the wealthy Emil Miller. Philip takes an immediate liking to her and asks her out. It soon becomes obvious to everyone except Philip that Mildred is manipulative and using him only insofar as he spends money on her and treats her nicely. She refuses his proposal of marriage saying she is to marry someone else but many months later is back on his doorstep, pregnant and without a place to live. This will not be the last time that she seeks his help only to abandon him when a better proposition comes along. Throughout it all, Philip remains steadfast, honest and caring even though it is all to his detriment.

Film Review

111: Of Human Bondage (1934) – released 6/28/1934, viewed 8/24/08.Franklin Roosevelt signs the Securities Exchange Act into law. Donald Duck makes his debut in the short 'Wise Little Hen.' BIRTHS: Harlan Ellison, Bill Moyers.DOUG: IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are a Netflix person like me and you are thinking about checking out Bettie Davis' breakthrough movie, rent the one called "Pre-Code Hollywood: Of Human Bondage." The other one is a horrible, horrible transfer that looks and sounds like twenty miles of bad road. On to the review: This was my first Bettie Davis movie. I didn't really get into this movie; it just smacks of one of those prestige films that the Academy force-feeds you at Oscar time. Davis' accent bounces hopelessly between upper-crust and Cockney. Her performance is interesting to watch all the same, especially her famous meltdown scene. The cinematographer does everything possible to show off Davis' good looks where necessary (the song &q…

This film is based on the story by British author, Somerset Maugham. The story begins with a struggling artist, Philip Carey (played wonderfully by the late Leslie Howard). He is advised that he's a mediocre artist. With that, he returns home to London and goes to medical school. There he becomes infatuated and in an unhealthy relationship with Mildred Rogers (played wonderfully by the late great Bette Davis). I'm not going into the controversy of why Bette Davis was not nominated for an Academy Award for this performance. I know that she has done brilliantly in other film roles and would be awarded two Oscars in her lifetime. Anyway, the film really concentrates Philip Carey's character who was born with a club foot which makes him walk funny. His handicap is barely noticeable to the audience but the character feels it so self-consciously. His relationship with Mildred's character is complicated. The film is not about bondage at all which was not even discussed in…

I do not think this is a movie about love. It is a movie that compares and contrasts MANY human emotions that hold us in bondage – most notably, love and obsession. I pity people who think that what Philip (Howard) feels for Mildred (Davis) is LOVE! Of the 3 versions of this Somerset Maugham tale, this one is the weakest. Davis' Mildred is physically unattractive, mentally deranged, intellectually stunted, spiritually empty, and emotionally disturbed and inaccessible. To compensate for her shortcomings, she treats Philip with contempt! Hey, what's not to love? Philip's obsession with such a creature is unimaginable! Even as allegory, this is too much of a stretch!For my money, both of the remakes are better movies. Eleanor Parker and Kim Novak both portray a Mildred who is prettier and less shrewish – and consequently more believable. Mildred becomes both more understandable and more pathetic. Also, because they are both prettier than Davis obsession with either one of the…
