Hopkins's most appealing role?


Miriam Hopkins was one of the most interesting Hollywood actresses of the early 1930s. I've always thought her best work of this era was with Lubitsch, although she was quite good for William Wyler in "These Three." Later she seemed to specialize in neurotic roles and never seemed to me as sympathetic as earlier in her career. She had a reputation for being brittle and difficult to work with. But I found her performance in "The Stranger's Return" a pleasant surprise--the most appealing I've seen by her. Anyone else as impressed by her here as I was?
