Dark Victory

As Judy Traherne, the fast-moving Long Island socialite whose world skids to a stop when she discovers she has less than a year to live, Bette Davis is thoroughly captivating. She flirts with suicide as she progresses from belligerent drunken despair to exhilaration - determined to live her remaining months, in the words of her doctor/lover (George Brent), "beautifully and finely." Terrific supporting cast includes Humphrey Bogart, Geraldine Fitzgerald and Ronald Reagan.
