Dark Victory Reviews
Davis was never more vulnerable or got to show off all of her gifts, and her ending scene is weepie heaven.
And with a very young Humphrey Bogart (and Ronald Reagan!) to boot!
Also, first time I remember seeing a film with Ronald Reagan. That was just a random remark really. Although Geraldine Fitzgerald is completely lost in the emotionally overwhelming performance by Bette Davis, she deserves praise for her portrayal as Davis' best friend, something of a thankless role in this case, doomed to be outshone, and yet she manages to bring something unforgettable to the part, holding her own and even giving the star a bit of serious competition in some scenes.
