Overlooked
21 November 1998 | by (Charlotte, NC) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite overlooked movies of the '40s. Olivia deHavilland truly deserved an Academy Award for her performance. Told in flashbacks, she is as believable as an older woman as she was as a young lady. A really memorable ending, I could watch it again and again.
