NOW, VOYAGER / DEAD RINGER
Discussion between films with Monika Henreid, daughter of Paul Henreid.
NOW, VOYAGER
1942, Warner Bros., 117 min, USA, Dir: Irving Rapper

“Don't ask for the moon - we have the stars.” In this classic Bette Davis soap opera, the great actress plays a repressed spinster who finds love with Paul Henreid after psychiatrist Claude Rains encourages her to stand up to her domineering mother and to embrace life. Max Steiner's Oscar-winning score provides just the right amount of emphasis in this manipulative but undeniably effective, intelligent Hollywood sudser. “…a highly narcotic, swoon-inducing romance in the Bette Davis canon.” - Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine


DEAD RINGER
1964, Warner Bros., 116 min, USA, Dir: Paul Henreid

This well-crafted thriller provides a double dose of deception with Bette Davis playing twin sisters driven apart by love and money. When one kills the other to assume her identity, she faces hurdles in the form of two boyfriends - police sergeant Karl Malden and unscrupulous playboy Peter Lawford.


Screening formats: 35mm (NOW, VOYAGER) and Blu-ray (DEAD RINGER)
