Four Bette Davis films make DVD debuts

'Satan Met a Lady' is an adaptation of 'The Maltese Falcon.'

Bette Davis fans — and just who out there isn't? — are in for a treat thanks to Warner Archive. Four Davis flicks made their DVD debuts Tuesday, including two with the wonderful King of the Pre-Code flicks Warren William — the 1932 political comedy "The Dark Horse," which also stars Guy Kibbee, and 1936's "Satan Met a Lady," Warner Bros.' second adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's "The Maltese Falcon." Rounding out the new releases are the 1935 crime drama "Secret Agent," with her frequent co-star George Brent and Ricardo Cortez, and the 1948 romantic comedy "June Bride," also starring Robert Montgomery. "June Bride" also marked Debbie Reynolds' film debut.
