One of the finest weepies ever made by Hollywood. Davis is nothing short of magnificent.

Bette Davis's frisky sprint sets the pace
April 27, 2009
Naught but a torrid melodrama, but oh! what a humdinger of a melodrama it is! It's films like this that give trash a good name.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
April 9, 2008
A classic women's pic that strings together a collection of syrupy clichés that can make a real man double up in pain.

Guilty pleasure: One of Warner's best acted melodramas and Bette Davis's all-time favorite, in which she lives hard but dies in dignity as an heiress gone blind. Also Davis revenge as Tallulah Bankhead failed to bring the role to life in the 1934 play.

It's horribly dated, playing today like some weird, contrived burlesque of common sense.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
July 7, 2005
One of Bette Davis' best acted, most enjoyable melodrama, in which she gloriously plays a dying blind woman.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

What happens when a three-hankie picture just isn't that sad? You get Dark Victory.

Of interest to both Goulding and Davis fans...Dark Victory catches both of them operating at their best while also learning new tricks from each other.
