While movie fans were abuzz over who might play Scarlett OHara in the upcoming Gone with the Wind, Bette Davis got another Southern-belle role -- and gave a fiery performance that won the 1938 Best Actress Academy Award . Davis plays Julie, a New Orleans beauty whose constant attempts to goad fiance Pres Dillard (Henry Fonda) to jealousy backfire. Angry and disgraced, Pres breaks their engagement and leaves town. Julie endures a year of remorse until Pres comes home -- married. Then her vengeance explodes. Jezebel is also noted for its sumptuous sets and costumes, Fay Bainters Oscar -winning* performance and William Wylers vivid direction, highlighted by a horrifying re-creation of a yellow fever epidemic. But the films greatest strength is Davis, whose titanic talent has never been better displayed than in Jezebel.
