Goofs

Although constantly referred to as a "hero", Slick Novak's naval uniform only has his aviator wings; there are no ribbons to indicate that he had received any award or decoration for being a hero. In reality, he would have worn any and all ribbons to which he was entitled, per Navy regulations. See more »

A beautiful little film
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually enjoy seeing obscure films with great stars. WINTER MEETING is not film on a large scale, but is a smaller film with the quality and production of a prestige picture. It is, after all, a Bette Davis film. Like Joan Crawford's later vehicles as Warner's, such as THIS WOMAN IS DANGEROUS, Bette's WINTER MEETING has been met with much unjust criticism. People view it with the wrong expectations. It is not a grand, overheated melodrama like DECEPTION or POSSESSED. It is, rather, a poetic and intelligent film about two people who come together and help each other solve their problems and loneliness. It is a movie about how relationships with other people can strengthen us, and the theme is beautifully explored in many unique and surprising ways.

Bette Davis gives one of her most subtle and restrained performances. It is also one of her most effective, because of that restraint. Jim Davis is effective enough as the man who helps her. The best things about the film are the lovely score and the wonderful photography of a wintry New York you will not soon forget. What the film has going for it is an unforgettable mood and atmosphere.

It may not be for everyone, but if you watch it with the right expectations, you will be impressed. The original theatrical trailer is viewable on turnerclassicmovies.com.
