Ryan Christopher Coleman's rating of the film Now, Voyager

Sublime! Bette is as enchanting as a sophisticated society lady as she is a mousy shut-in. Before Now, Voyager I had only seen Dangerous and Jezebel, and I was shocked to see a Bette character possess traits like manners and a temper. In one of her most subdued roles, she radiates an eagerness for her craft that is invigorating. Her on-screen sister June is also played by a person named "Bonita Granville." Charming.
