The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers. It represents the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show.

Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics.

The first and best of three Hollywood versions of Maugham's novel boasts a grand dramatic performance from Bette Davis, who scandalously was snubbed by the Academy; she was a write-in candidate for the Oscar.

Abandoning artistic ambitions, sensitive and club-footed Philip Carey enrolls in medical school and falls in love with a waitress Mildred Rogers. She rejects him, runs off with a salesman and returns unmarried and pregnant. Philip gets her an apartment and they become engaged. Mildred runs off with another medical student. Philip takes her back again when she returns with her baby. She wrecks his apartment and burns the securities he needs to pay tuition. He gets a job as a salesman, has surgery on his foot, receives an inheritance, and returns to school where he learns Mildred is dying.

Philip Carey is only five when his mother dies. Philip is taken to live with an aunt and uncle who are not used to children and do not know how to deal with him. Philip's uncle is self centered and strict, while Philip's aunt is unaccustomed to giving or receiving unconditional love. This situation makes Philip's childhood difficult, but not without affection. From his aunt, Philip develops a love of literature that he will carry with him the rest of his life.

At nine Philip is sent to boarding school. Philip finds school a harsh environment where his club foot is suddenly fodder for cruelty. Philip is teased and tortured over his deformity, causing him to shun the boys with whom he goes to school. When Philip finally makes a friend, this boy crushes his heart when he turns from him and then tells everyone that he was only kind to Philip because of his deformity. Philip cannot get out of school fast enough and eventually talks his guardians into allowing him to go abroad.

Philip goes to Germany where he finishes his studies in the home of a German professor and her husband. There Philip learns that God and religion are not absolutes and begins to embrace a new philosophy on the morality of life. When Philip returns home, he does not tell his uncle about his new outlook on life, but does announce he does not intend to enter Oxford or to become a clergyman like his uncle as had been expected. Instead it is arranged that Philip will become an apprentice with an accountant.
