365 Day Movie Challenge - #198: Dark Victory (1939) - dir. Edmund Goulding
This tearjerker stars the incomparable Bette Davis as a terminally ill woman who falls in love with her brain surgeon, George Brent (Davis’s favorite leading man). This drama also stars the wonderful Geraldine Fitzgerald, Humphrey Bogart, Virginia Brissac, Henry Travers and a young Ronald Reagan. The film was justifiably nominated for three Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Score (Max Steiner), though it should have gotten a fourth nomination for its cinematography by Ernest Haller.
