Ethan's rating of the film Now, Voyager

The chemistry between Bette Davis and Paul Henreid is absolutely electric and hands down the high point of this little melodrama. Smoking cigarettes never looked so sexy and you can practically feel the carnal desire on their faces as they smoke with each other. Claude Rains offers his calm sarcasm and brilliantly complements this stunning film. Davis was a presence and she shows her full range in this picture.
