1942 6TH OSCAR NOMINATION BETTE DAVIS W/PAUL HENREID

Bette Davis was nominated for a 6th Oscar (& lost) for her role as Charlotte Vale, a lead performance that makes her stand alone as the greatest actor of all time.

Miss Charlotte Vale (Bette Davis), of Boston's upper class, is the so called 'black sheep', 'ugly duckling', 'spinster' of a stinking rich, uppity, matriarchal maniacal family. Playing her mother (Gladys Cooper) is the
(s)mother & 1/2 dominator who, because of her extreme wealth & age, gets away with tyranny over & social isolation of her heir, Charlotte. She's a mother who nearly destroys Charlotte's ego & self-esteem.

Miss Vale's psychiatrist's, Dr. Jaquith's (Claude Rains), treatments at a posh retreat mental home works miraculously to convince Charlotte to go on a lengthy cruise vacation. During her sea adventures abroad Charlotte comes out blossoming as the toast of the socialites. Everyone loves her for herself, not the family they don't know she comes from. She uses pseudonyms!

To her surprise, men are falling at her feet. Bette Davis is putting on the ritz! She falls in love with one of her many admirers; a married man who has an 'ugly duckling' daughter much like the former withered Miss Vale used to be. That's their ultimate connection: an understanding of how Charlotte was very much like his child, Tina; his wife, too much like her controlling mother. The closeness the traveling couple develops is one that a viewer doesn't ever want to see end.

Jerry's (Henreid) a father who is miserable in his marriage; as much as Charlotte is in her birth home with (s)mother dearest. Charlotte extends her trip as long as she can to be with Jerry; but, because he is married & believes his daughter needs him, just as he brought his "Camille" (Davis) out of her social shell, the lovers ever so reluctantly agree to part forever, though madly in love, admittedly.

Charlotte goes home to mother misery (Cooper), but is no longer the wall flower who shys away from domination. Even when elderly & ill Mrs. Vale confides in Charlotte that she is leaving the bulk of the family's wealth to her, it doesn't seduce her. Mother Vale delivers that $ taunt as a "quid pro quo" threat--do as I say or else.... But, Charlotte isn't a bashful, bashable, frumpy victim now. Her self-esteem has come into full force. Every day a camille corsage arrives from her (mysterious to everyone else) married lover, Jerry. Charlotte wears it to carry his love with her & to remind herself of how his love empowers her.

I won't spoil a magnificent ending because it is one superbly "love of a lifetime" finale. I can't even give you a slight clue it's too rich.

The famous line Davis delivers with perfection to her lover is (paraphrased) "Let's not ask for the moon, when we have the stars."
Whenever I hear that line, my throat chokes up in awed emotion of the great love they share.

I despise gushy love stories. Read my reviews: you won't find them. The reason why is that none could ever touch this one.

There were at least 3 Oscar nominations, with Max Steiner winning his for
Best Original Score. Truthfully, I don't recall the music because Davis' performance is as sensuous as she ever was in a film. I don't recall Davis in a role playing a sizzling hot looking femme fatale. Is this one of the few roles Davis played "drop dead gorgeous"? I'm in love with her. But, in real life, Davis picks Dr. Jacquith (Claude Rains) for Charlotte to fall in love with in her ideal of a sequel~

Now Voyager is Awesome!! Bette Davis at her Greatest!

Review For: Now, Voyager (DVD, 2006)

Bette Davis plays it all in Now Voyager. She starts out as the homely (I mean HOMELY), old maid daughter, Charlotte Vale, of a rich, domineering widow played by Gladys Cooper. Through the intervention of her brother's wife, Dr. Jasquith, a psychiatrist, (Claude Rains)is brought in and recommends that Charlotte be committed to his spa-asylum for therapy. She goes and is transformed to a young woman of confidence and beauty. I will never forget the scene where Charlotte gets on a cruise ship after leaving the asylum; her wide brimmed hat hides her face until she looks up and now she is beautiful!! That was spectacularly done!

While on the cruise she meets Jerry Durrance (Paul Henreid) and falls for him and he for her. However, he is in an unhappy marriage. She goes home, and her mother tries to put her back into the spinster mode. It is so satisfying to see her resist Mrs. Vale's demands. But Jerry's daily shipment of white camellias keeps Charlotte's hopes alive. And then her mother dies, and Charlotte feels guilty because they argued right before her death.

A second trip to the spa-asylum finds Charlotte all involved with a little girl who reminds her of herself. She has no self-esteem, cries nightly, and misses her daddy. Could this be the cure for Charlotte's depression?

From there, you are on your own. I will tell you two things more: (1) the Max Steiner music will haunt you for days. It won the Academy Award that year.(2) This is the movie known for Jerry (Henreid) lighting two cigarettes and giving one to Charlotte (Davis). He does this routine four times during the movie.

Bette Davis was nominated for Best Actress for this performance, and Gladys Cooper was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Neither won. However, this was Bette's top grossing movie of all times. She was now established as a top star for all times.

Also, this is the most wonderful Bette Davis movie that she made. Not afraid to look ugly at first, Bette is even more beautiful when she is transformed. Forget "Dark Victory," "The Letter," "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane," "The Little Foxes," "All About Eve," and "Jezebel." THIS IS IT!!

Vintage Bette Davis

Review For: Now, Voyager (DVD, 2006)

We decided to buy it because Barbra Streisand mentioned it in her film "The Mirror has Two Faces". We see now that the situation in "Now, Voyager" was very much like Barbras' character's in "The Mirror..." . This film has excellent acting and top stars including Paul Henried and Claude Rains , and is an unforgettable romance .

My favorite Bette Davis Movie!

Review For: Now, Voyager (DVD, 2006)

This is a FANTASTIC movie! Now Voyager delves into a character who has no self confidence, is treated badly by her clingy mother. Claude Raines is wonderful as a psychiatrist who has patience and faith in Davis' role. What used to be a frumpy, self loathing old maid is changed into a beautiful butterfly, who experiences life and love. This is a beautiful movie, and I recommend it highly :)

Now, Voyager Bette Davis & Paul Henreid

I watch this movie everytime it comes on Turner Classic Movies so I decided to buy my own copy so I could watch it any time I wanted to. It is very soul touching and romantic. The attentiveness that he gives Betty Davis is what everyone is looking for. Highly recommend. May be a tear-jerker to some but well worth it.
