This Bette Davis movie from 1934 finds her playing Kit Marlowe, an acclaimed author who tries to help her childhood friend Millie (Miriam Hopkins) to become a writer. Millie's talents don't extend beyond pulpy trash, but she ends up making more money than Kit, and the couple enters into a lengthy feud. Hopkings and Davis reunite on-screen after acting together in 1939's THE OLD MAID, and it's alleged that they didn't see eye-to-eye on the set of OLD ACQUAINTANCE, leading critics to ponder how much of their real-life hatred spilled over into the characters.
