In 1938, Jezebel was widely regarded as Warner Bros.' "compensation" to Bette Davis for her losing the opportunity to play Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind. Resemblances between the two properties are inescapable: Jezebel heroine Julie Marsden (Davis) is a headstrong Southern belle not unlike Scarlett (Julie lives in New Orleans rather than Georgia); she loves fiance Preston Dillard (played by Henry Fonda) but loses him when she makes a public spectacle of herself (to provoke envy in him) by wearing an inappropriate red dress at a ball, just as Scarlett O'Hara brazenly danced with Rhett Butler while still garbed in widow's weeds. There are several other similarities between the works, but it is important to note that Jezebel is set in the 1850s, several years before Gone With the Wind's Civil War milieu; and we must observe that, unlike Scarlett O'Hara, Julie Marsden is humbled by her experiences and ends up giving of her time, energy, and health during a deadly yellow jack outbreak. Bette Davis won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Julie.

From a politically left leaning Lillian Hellman penned novel-turned-film THE LITTLE FOXES (1941) is a hidden triumph of Hollywood. A harsh, desperate look at a family living in the deep south circa 1900 plagued by deceit, greed and selfishness. Master director William Wyler once again crafts an engaging cinematic gem with an all-star cast and powerful themes. Bette Davis portrayed one of the most despicable roles of her career. Teresa Wright plays her daughter, who, as the saving grace of the film, is able to distinguish her villainous mothers traits and seeks to distance herself before she too is caught up in its cancerous influences. Masterpiece is appropriate to describe the subtle interplay or character traits, many of whom are likeable until their hidden agenda is determined. Add into this mix, the extraordinary deep-focus cinematography of Gregg Toland and you have a film worthy of multiple repeat viewings.

A tender love story, a taut psychological drama, an inspiring tale of physical and spiritual transformation. Now, Voyager is all three, as well as a Bette Davis career milestone, resulting in her sixth Best Actress Oscar nomination. She magically plays Charlotte Vale, a spinster who defies her domineering mother (fellow Oscar nominee Gladys Cooper) to discover love, heartbreak and eventual contentment. More magic is generated by a top-notch ensemble, Max Steiner's Academy Award-winning score and an improvised moment by Paul Henreid that became an instant classic: he lights two cigarettes at once and hands one to Davis. For the ultimate in romantic melodrama, it's Now Voyager now, then and forever.
