The Little Foxes

The Little Foxes is a 1941 film directed by William Wyler and starring Bette Davis. It was the film version of a stage musical, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1941.

The title comes from the Bible; chapter 2, verse 17 of the Song of Solomon reads: "Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes." This is a translation that should more properly have translated "little foxes" as "fruitbats[?]", but it must be admitted that "take us the fruitbats" is not nearly so poetic.
