Now, Voyager 1942
Charlotte Vale (Bette Davis) lives under the thumb of her tyrannical mother (Gladys Cooper) until a nervous breakdown sends her to a sanatorium run by kindly Dr. Jaquith (Claude Rains). After extensive mental treatments, a slimmer, radiant but still painfully sensitive Charlotte stretches her wings on a Latin American cruise where she finds love, almost too late, with unhappily married Jerry Durrance (Paul Henreid). She leaves the cruise a stronger woman, but still has to face life with her mother, the woman who drove her to the brink of insanity once before.

Now, Voyager was purportedly the greatest box office success of Bette Davis' career, at least until All About Eve (1950). The popular film won an Oscar for Max Steiner's score, best remembered as the romantic song "It Can't Be Wrong". Davis and Cooper were respectively Oscar-nominated as Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. The film's legacy was cemented by its 2007 inclusion in the prestigious National Film Registry.
