Now, Voyager

Academy Award winner Bette Davis (All About Eve, Dark Victory) stars with Paul Henreid (Casablanca) in one of the greatest screen romances of all time. Young Charlotte Vale (Davis) leads a deeply repressed life, suffering under a domineering mother until psychiatrist Dr. Jaquith (Claude Rains, Notorious, Casablanca) encourages her to emerge from her cocoon. On a trans-Atlantic voyage, Vale falls in love with Jerry Durrence (Henreid), who is trapped in a loveless marriage. Rather than break up Durrence’s marriage, Vale becomes a surrogate mother to his emotionally disturbed daughter, rescuing her from the same fate Charlotte herself faced. Based on the novel by Olive Higgins Prouty, Now, Voyager won an Academy Award for Best Music (Max Steiner) and was nominated for Best Actress in a Lead Role and Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
