The Rise of Catherine the Great
In 1745 a German princess, renamed Catherine, arrives to marry Grand Duke Peter of Russia, whom she initially likes. But his suspicious, unstable nature gradually estranges them, and Peter finds solace with pretty courtiers. Catherine invents her own (fictitious) lovers, temporarily improving matters. Alas, accession to the throne brings out the worst in Peter, and loyal Catherine is urged to assume power.

(us) wrote: Two Bette Davis for the price of one....with a fanastic score by Andre Previn played on a spooky Spinet. Davis plays twins, one of whom is a rich bitch and the other is poor as a church mouse. When the poor twin discovers she was duped out of her rightful marriage twenty years earlier she plots revenge. Superbly supported by Jean Hagen and Estelle Winwood the film is marred slightly by the appearrance of Peter Lawford as a gigolo. Nevertheless this is a wonderfully dark companion piece to "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" and is in my view much more atmospheric and suspenseful than "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" For Davis fans its a must.

He tells her she will be fine, but he later informs her friend (Fitzgerald) that she is dying from a brain tumor and only has a few months to live. Bette Davis was fresh from her win from classic 1938's "Jezebel". It's a great movie, and is most of the time just a teeny bit overlooked than this movie. It shouldn't be. To me, this is a great example of a tearjerker. Since I'm not a crier, nothing came out for me, but certainly it's believable why so many people consider this to be so good. Davis' performance is very very good and should have won an Oscar for this one too (though it was pretty rare to get to Academy Awards two times in a row). Fitzgerald made this the same year she made William Wyler's "Wuthering Heights" which she was nominated for an Oscar for best supporing actress. Though her role might not be as vital or as great as the other one, she certainly does a standup job and proves why she was considered so good. Look out for Humphrey Bogart and Ronald Reagen in early roles by the way! "Dark Victory" is a classic, and certainly adds to 1939's list of best movies
