|Bette Davis has to be hands down my favorite actress (and I love Claude Rains too) and her movie, Now Voyager also one of my favorites. I didn't realize until recently that the movie was based on a book by Olive Higgins Prouty (she also wrote Stella Dallas) and I was delighted to find it in our library. I just finished reading it and love it. What's great about it is that it fleshes out the movie perfectly and I was reading it with the voices of the actors in the movies in my mind. I was also surprised at how closely the movie followed the book!
If you love the movie you need to read the book.
