Dir: Irving Rapper | USA | 1942 | 117 mins
Cast: Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Gladys Cooper
Bette Davis gives an Oscar-nominated performance in Irving Rapper’s elegant, classic melodrama – based on a bestselling 1941 novel – as Charlotte, an unhappy and repressed woman whose life is blighted by her dictatorial mother (Gladys Cooper). Fearing for Charlotte’s emotional state, her sister-in-law introduces her to a psychiatrist (Claude Rains), on whose advice she embarks on a cruise, during which she grows in confidence and finds herself contemplating love and romance for the very first time. Accompanied by an Oscar-winning soundtrack, it’s a swooning, sweepingly romantic watch. ‘Don’t let’s ask for the moon. We have the stars!’
