star the month movie pick

Dark Victory (1939)****

Bette Davis stars as a rich woman who discovers she has developed a
brain tumor (something with which I have personal experience). The
excellent cast includes George Brent, Humphrey Bogart, Geraldine
Fitzgerald, Ronald Reagan, and Henry Travers. Ms. Davis, Max Steiner's
Score (he did go up that staircase with her), and the film itself were
nominated for Academy Awards. #32 on AFI's 100 Greatest Love Stories

Did you know??

Bogart also appears (rather briefly) plays her employee, hired to take care of the horses in her stable!
