Bette Davis masterfully holds this not two-, not one-, but zero-handkerchief weepie together, worth it only for her again splendid performance so early already in her career,

with bit, but not especially distinguished, parts by Humphrey Bogart and Ronald Reagan,

everybody smokes, along with Davis of course, throughout, even her doctors, to our unending consternation

Nothing can hurt us now. What we have can't be destroyed. That's our victory - our victory over the dark. It is a victory because we're not afraid.

I've never taken orders from anyone. As long as I live, I'll never take orders from anyone. I'm young and strong and nothing can touch me.
