Fanny abandons her many beaus and marries wealthy businessman Job Skeffington in order to get her brother off an embezzling charge. It’s a loveless marriage and she neglects her husband and daughter in favour of a sparkling social life, yet soon she begins to question if money can really buy happiness. Davis was grieving her late husband while making this picture, making her Oscar®-nominated performance all the more remarkable.
