    Not a comment on the movie per se, but to query the date of the viewing. Do you really mean January 9, 2010?

  • Solomon

    Yes, Nel, you’re quite right about the incorrect date; it really should have been January 16th, 2010. It appears that someone responsible for the posting has been a weak behind.

    I found the movie offensive. The slaves singing on the plantation with Bette Davis conducting was as far as I could watch. Why was this movie selected?

  • Anita

    I agree with Susan. The stereotype of the dumb Brazilian driver in “Now Voyager” was no jewel, either. Irritating flaw on an otherwise incisive film. Glad we’ve improved somewhat on how we portray other cultures…

    Some parts of the movie were gut wrenching realistic and vulgar as this relates to the depiction of the movie and scenes. Betty Davis’ pride got the best of her in this movie. One of her best performances. I could really feel the raw feelings Betty Davis was feeling in the movie.
