Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role 1936
Plays Character That Is Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Mildred Rogers in Of Human Bondage 1934
Character Is A Prostitute
This is a film that no actress wanted to touch with a ten-foot pole. No one that is, but Bette Davis. She saw it was a fabulous part and begged to play the role. Based on a novel by W. Somerset Maugham, it chronicles the obsession one man has with a waitress he meets by chance. Her name is Mildred Rogers, but she is no ordinary woman. She is someone who is unfeeling, mean and treats everyone like dirt. Mildred has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. She uses everybody and anybody to get what she wants. After going through nearly everyone, she has run out of options. Mildred is forced to become a prostitute to survive.
