was Bette's favorite film. She liked her acting and thought the
story was well done. There are many memorable performances in this
film including a young Ronald Reagon and Humphrey Bogart in a supporting
role. George Brent plays Bette's doctor and love interest and Geraldine
Fitzgerald plays her assistant and close friend. The story is about
a woman who learns she is dying, marries her doctor and they go
and live in Vermont until she dies. Its true melodrama at its best
and her dying scene cannot be missed.
