Louise is a most appealing type of person, a warm, intelligent woman who loses her heart to a charming ne'er-do-well who marries, then deserts her. It takes the pandemonium of the San Francisco earthquake and two years of heartache to reunite them.

In this fluffy, 1938, period, Chick Flick - The one scene that really killed me was when Flynn's and Davis's characters first meet.

And here's how it went - Standing in a moderately-sized ballroom of about 60 dancing couples, Flynn's dashing character carefully scans the busy room and, sure enough, his gaze zeros in on one of the most plain and homely females in the crowd (Yep. That's Bette Davis). And instantly he's mesmerized, falling madly in love with her and immediately marrying her on a total whim. (Yeah. Right. Give me a break, already!)

Set mainly in San Francisco (circa 1904) - "The Sisters" story was hardly about the "sisters" at all. (There were 3 of them) It was chiefly concerned with just one sister, and, that, of course, was Davis's character.

In my opinion - The Sisters (which is now close to 80 years old) really didn't stand up to the test of time. For the most part this rather predictable, little soap opera was so "dish-water" dull that even the scene of simulated earthquake effects did nothing to alleviate the story's overall monotony.
