I decided I could not site a single thing wrong with this movie to justify cutting that last star off. It may or may not be the best movie Bette Davis ever made, but it's close enough to count.

Charlotte Vale (Bette Davis) is the browbeaten daughter of an overbearing Boston matriarch who had her late in life and apparently did not want her. She is treated like a servant, with the difference that she cannot quit. Her sister invites Dr. Jaquith (Claude Rains) to visit, and suggests they not let on that he is a noted psychiatrist. But mother lets the cat out of the bag in no time, and makes it quite clear to the good doctor exactly why Charlotte is so depressed, self-loathing, bitter. He tells her mother that she is gravely ill and suggests she come to his sanitarium for a few weeks.

Once there, free of her mother at last, she does well until the doctor suggests she is improving so much she could go home soon. Her reaction to this convinces him to suggest she take an ocean cruise instead. It was very smart of him.

She got the last available stateroom due to a last-minute cancellation by a popular performer apparently known to Charlotte, although perhaps she was a radio performer or a singer, because no one seems to know what she looks like. So when Charlotte comes on board, they call her by the French lady's name. Also, the glamorous lady's wardrobe was already on board, so Charlotte could use her clothes. In fact, there were little notes pinned on them encouraging Charlotte to use them, and suggesting which shoes go with which outfit, and so on.

Also on board this cruise is Jerry Durrance (Paul Henreid), unhappily married, father of two, and a frustrated architect. Naturally these two are attracted to each other.

Up until 2 yrs ago I had never seen this movie, but my mom raved about it. at first I blew her off, saying I wasn't interested in any old black and white movie but her perseverance paid off. by chance a colorized version happened to be on tv and so to keep mom happy I watched it. Was I ever surprised - this was a grand movie and I loved every minute of it. so much that I purchased it as a gift for my mom for Christmas - now she and I can share the movie viewing together. since she is 87 she remembers these stars of yesteryear and how they rose through the movie trade, gaining popularity as each year passed. DON'T BLOW THIS MOVIE OFF BECAUSE YOU DON'T CARE FOR CLASSICS. Watch it first before making a snap judgment.

It is surprising that this famous film, one of the best in the legacy of the great Bette Davis, has been issued on DVD in such a basic package. All the superlatives apply to Davis as the repressed Boston spinster, Paul Henried as her lover, Gladys Cooper as her autocratic mother and Claude Rains as her psychiatrist. The film is a superb Warner's production. Davis was vigilant on the set, directing the traffic with director Irving Rapper and ensuring that it was quality all the way. A minor criticism is that the transitions are often clumsy and sudden, causing a jarring shift in moods.

While the print of the film presented here is perfect, it is disappointing that the only extra is the original trailer. Surely an expert commentary was warranted, particularly when they were made available on many lesser Davis vehicles. At least the DVD can be purchased sometimes at a bargain price.

It is hard to make a movie that is both sad and uplifting but Now Voyager accomplishes this. Apparently Bette Davis really didn't, as has been said, care about how bad they made her look in a movie. She is perfect in this from first scene to last. Nobody else could have done it. The supporting cast was wonderful. "Dora", the nurse - perfect. I have looked at it many times and, I'm sure, will look at it many more times. If you are a classic B&W movie fan or a Bette Davis fan and haven't seen this film then get it as quickly as possible. I know that there are films where color is much the better choice but there is nothing like the beautiful B&W photography in some of these classic films. You simply can't do lights and shadows with color the way they did in B&W.

Bette Davis is able to show the depth of her acting abilities in the classic NOW, VOYAGER. Davis stars as Charlotte Vale, a dowdy spinster living her life under the domineering reigns of her elderly mother. Despite being surrounded by wealth and privilege, her life is in shambles.
Enter psychiatrist Dr. Jaquith, played by the delightful Claude Rains, and a stay at his luxurious sanitarium far away from her mother, and Charlotte's life is transformed.

Weight loss, an eyebrow trim and a heavy dose of self-confidence and Charlotte is transformed into a true beauty. Her next adventure is to take a cruise on her own with her new self. Soon she finds true love and brief romance with the very much married Jerry, played by a dashing but somber Paul Henreid.

Charlotte's life is changed for ever through a love that can only continue in her heart and dreams. She returns to her mother's home with a new sense of independence and Jerry forever in her heart.

At this point, the story begins to drag. The beauty in this film is Charlotte's blossoming into a fine and lovely lady with a future. It would have been enjoyable to see more of Jerry and Charlotte on the cruise, but all good things must end. Charlotte returns home and tries to start her life again. She is transformed and eventually finds a way to see Jerry again.

NOW, VOYAGER is a true classic in every sense of the word. Here are several of Warner Brothers' top actors together in one of Warner's classic 1940's films--a time when studios were cranking out films week after week and the quality never suffered.
