Trivia Though Bette Davis was very proud of the Oscar she won for this film, she didn't think she deserved it that year - in her opinion, Katharine Hepburn should have won for Alice Adams (1935). Davis always thought she won as compensation for not even being nominated for her star-making performance in Of Human Bondage (1934) the previous year. See more »

Quotes Don Bellows: Restful here, isn't it?
Joyce Heath: The whole countryside seems to have found peace.
Don Bellows: A person could find peace too.
Joyce Heath: No, you'll only find that in yourself and when you do, you might as well be dead.
Don Bellows: Dead?
Joyce Heath: Rest In Peace is for tombstones.
Don Bellows: And for the living?
Joyce Heath: Desire. To want something. To obtain that desire and live up to every moment of it. And then go on leaving yesterday behind. On and on. Higher and higher.
