NOW VOYAGER - Davis dazzles as Charlotte Vale, a miserable young spinster driven to the brink of a nervous breakdown by her shrewish mother (Dame Gladys Cooper in a masterful performance); but saved by a caring psychiatrist and a chance for love. Special Features: music scoring sessions.
DARK VICTORY - In the ultimate portrait of courage under fire, Davis is New England heiress Judith Traherne, faced with an incurable brain cancer that will eventually rob her of her sight. Special Features: new featurette "1939: Tough Competition for Dark Victory", audio commentary with James Ursini and Paul Clinton; and the trailer.
OLD ACQUAINTANCE - Bette Davis slaps Miriam Hopkins silly in the signature scene from this ripe "women's picture". Davis is Kit Marlowe, an author who willingly shuns fame and glory for the prestige of her work, whilst Hopkins is her antithesis, glamorous romance novelist Millie Drake, intent on destroying Kit's happiness when it happens to also involve Millie's husband and child! Special Features: audio commentary with Boze Hadleigh and director Vincent Sherman; and the trailer.Read more ›
In Jezebel, Davis pairs with Henry Fonda and George Brent in an antebellum drama where social conventions are challenged by the heroine, Julie Marsden (Davis), and later shattered by yellow fever. It is directed by William Wyler. In Now, Voyager she has a romance with Paul Henreid while on a cruise through South America. It is also about personal transformation for Charlotte Vale (Davis), where she starts as a secluded spinstress (literallly), and becomes a headstrong, independent woman who can also transform the lives of others. The romance may seem dated, but I find it delightful to watch. Specially, I enjoy listening to the romantic exchanges between Davies and Henreid with Max Steiner's soundtrack in the background. In Dark Victory, Bette Davis plays Judith Traherne, another headstrong lead who must face terminal illness, a tumor in the head. George Brent plays her doctor (with whom she marries) and Humphry Bogart, a stablehand who is in love with her. Although it might be considered a tear-jerker, it's still an important Bette Davis film.Read more ›
