Black SplatThe Letter (1940)
   

"Yes, I killed him. And I’m glad I tell you. Glad! Glad! Glad!”

"The Letter" starring Bette Davis

Description - Bette Davis as Leslie Crosbie delivers a startling but "rehearsed" confession in the film The Letter (1940).

Leslie is the respectable wife of a Malaysian rubber plantation owner. After she murders her lover, Geoffrey Hammond (David Newell) who wanted to leave her, she claims self-defense based on unwanted sexual advances.

"With all my heart, I still love the man I killed." - Leslie Crosbie

In a tear jerking performance in front of the court, Leslie slyly acts the hysterical victim to convince her peers of her innocence. But a letter she wrote to Geoffrey, now in the hands of his widow (Gale Sondergaard) might provide sufficient evidence that she is guilty. The widow wants money and satisfaction for Leslie's foul deed.
