Many films

Misunderstood and underrated, Miriam is Bette Davis' equal, according to none other than Rouben Mamoulian!

She apparently had way of ticking off her co-stars. Reprotedly both Edward G. Robinson and Bette Davis both took swings at her.

I love classic movies, but Miriam Hopkins is actually one of my least favorite stars. She talks fast and over acts in her later years. I read in a films of Claudette Colbert book that people liked her when she first started in films but people found her increasingly hard to work with as her stardom grew.
