NOW, VOYAGER
1942, Warner Bros., 117 min, USA, Dir: Irving Rapper

“Don't ask for the moon - we have the stars.” In this classic Bette Davis soap opera, the great actress plays a repressed spinster who finds love with Paul Henreid after psychiatrist Claude Rains encourages her to stand up to her domineering mother and to embrace life. Max Steiner's Oscar-winning score provides just the right amount of emphasis in this manipulative but undeniably effective, intelligent Hollywood sudser. “…a highly narcotic, swoon-inducing romance in the Bette Davis canon.” - Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine
