    My favorite is as the reclusive but not so nutty Charlotte Hollis in “Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte”.

    It’s a three way tie between The Great Lie, All About Eve and Now, Voyager. I really liked her in Of Human Bondage, but it has been years since I have seen it. In the great lie, I really like the scene with her at the cottage with Mary Astor. I like all the scenes with her and Mary Astor. She was funny. It’s good stuff. In Now, Voyager, she was tender and very down to earth despite her money. And she really stood up to her mother even though she loved her very much. But really, I enjoy her no matter the movie. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane was too sad, though.
