Election Countdown. From Alfred E. Green, the prolific and vastly underrated director who brought us Baby Face with Barbara Stanwyck, comes another collaboration with a powerhouse actress, Bette Davis. The Dark Horse is a prophetic pre-Code comedy about a progressive political dark horse that makes this year’s elections look stodgy with its convoluted and hysterical plot line.
