The Cheat

The Cheat ★★

The script is incredibly rudimentary and the direction almost perversely inert—even for 1931—but what you can't turn away from is the uniquely magnetic persona of Tallulah Bankhead, a true goddess if ever there was one. She owns the screen in a way few actresses have ever come close to, and it's her performance that makes this otherwise unremarkable production memorable.
