Dark Victory (Episode #1046)

KQED 9: Sat, Jan 16, 2010 -- 8:00 PM

Critic Pauline Kael called this vintage Bette Davis vehicle a "kitsch classic." Davis gives one of her best performances as Judith Traheme, a fast-living, swinging socialite who loves to smoke, drink and raise thoroughbred horses with the help of her Irish stableman Michael O'Leary (Humphrey Bogart), who secretly loves her. When headaches and failing vision lead to a diagnosis of a brain tumor, she in turn falls in love with, and eventually marries, her surgeon (George Brent), who strives even harder to cure her. The film also features Ronald Reagan, Geraldine Fitzgerald and Cora Witherspoon, and received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Original Score (by Max Steiner).
