Now Voyager (1942)

Self-effacing woman goes to therapy and finds confidence and love.  One of Bette Davis' defining roles, which she executes perfectly.  Claude Rains is slick and lovable.  Gladys Cooper gives you chills as the bitter controlling mother.  And of course the famous scene where Claude lights 2 cigarettes, who can forget that.  One of the excellent melodramas coming out of the WWII era.  When you hear the term, "They don't make em like that anymore", this is the one they're talking about.  Don't miss it.
