Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

Now, Voyager
A mother-dominated ugly duckling turned swan discovers independence—and love. Grab the moon, the stars and a shining Bette Davis in one of Hollywood's most tender and touching screen romances on video.

Dark Victory
"Davis is enchanted and enchanting," The New York Times' Frank S. Nugent wrote, in her signature role as a spoiled society girl facing terminal illnes—and a last chance to give her life meaning in this film.

Old Acquaintance
Davis and Miriam Hopkins's friendship is a 20-year balancing act of handholding, backstabbing and femme fireworks. "Splendid battle of the wild cats, with two stars fighting their way through a plush production." —Halliwell's Film Guide.

Jezebel
As a manipulative New Orleans belle—in this Bette Davis film—she sows a tempest and reaps a whirlwind in a fiery antebellum classic, winning an Oscar for her work. Henry Fonda and George Brent co-star; William Wyler directs.

            Comments about this product:

            On a lazy Sunday afternoon, or any evening before going to bed. ( I watch in bed) Just the thing to relax one and have top quality entertainment. I turn the TV off most nights because nothing compares with these well written, beautifully photographed, superbly acted and directed films.
            If you know Bette Davis films you can't help but love these and if you don't know Bette Davis films you can give yourself a wonderful treat and educate yourself about the best years in the Movie business .
            The films that are being made today ( 2014) cannot compare to these and we are so lucky to have them. Thank you Turner Classic Movies.

                              There is so little to watch on TV that is worthwhile. I find I am always falling back on the movies of yesteryear. There is nothing the children can't see or hear and there are always lessons of life and love.

                                Today's movies are all about SHOCK AND AWE. One actor is the lead with lesser unknowns. I will continue to purchase and view OLD movies if only to honor the memory of so many fine actors and also those 'other actors' who receive little coverage. I thank Turner Classic Movies for not just the option so purchase such fine works, and I add on your channel is AD FREE. THANK YOU.

                                  Jezebel is a William Wyler directed, Bette Davis Best Actress (2nd) Oscar-winning 1938 classic movie. Henry Fonda plays the lead actor. Dark Victory is the movie Miss Davis to be the most well made of all of her films. Davis was nominated for one of 5 successive Best Actress Oscars for her performance. It's also one of many films Bogie's in with Davis. Throughout Old Acquaintance Bette Davis commands the leading role delivering an tour de force performance with Miriam Hopkins as her supporting actress. Probably at the top of this collection's list of movies is Now, Voyager, the ultimate Davis and Henreid dramatic romance (and a half). This is film quickly becomes most viewers' favorite of all of this collection. Each movie is a bonafied classic with 'The First Lady of American Cinema' playing the leading role.

                                    There are so many DVD collections of Bette Davis' greatest films. This collection failed to select Miss Davis' most important films. Plus, it is inexpensive to buy each one of these DVDs separately since they are so common.

                                      Four wonderful Bette films in one package! They're all great films and I especially enjoyed the commentaries in the special features section. Jezebel is one of my favorite Bette films.

                                        I am a definite Bette Davis fanatic. I have over 100 of her movies. It's a long story, but I even got to talk on the phone with her once and she sent me an autographed picture of herself which I will treasure forever. My favorite of her movies is Now Voyager.

                                        There will never be another actress with her style and unusual kind of talent. I simply adore watching her movies.

                                          I recently purchased Now Voyager at a local store but when I saw that TCM was offering Now Voyager with three additional movies for a few dollars more I was amazed. You will indulge in the performances of Bette Davis giving it her best always. The true epitome of excellence.

                                              You will really enjoy Bette Davis in these 4 shows. These appear to be Bette when she was in her late 20's and boy does she give a memorial performance. Enjoy!
