When talking about movie classics directed by John Huston, this film doesn't get mentioned right up top along with The Maltese Falcon, The Treasure of Sierra Madre, The Asphalt Jungle and The African Queen. But In This Our Life does have boldness and merit worth noting coupled with social comments about race that still command attention. Those are worth noting now that we realize America did not become "post-racial" just because Barack Obama was elected President. In This Our Life also gave Hattie McDaniel the best role of her career after her historic Best Supporting Actress Academy Award victory for Gone With The Wind. This 1942 drama directed by Huston is a mainly a star vehicle for the reigning queen of the Warner Brothers studio lot, Bette Davis. This is one of those Bette Davis W.O.W. roles -- Witch on Wheels.
