1942's Now Voyager starring Bette Davis and Paul Henreid. Not only was the fashion divine, but it was a great film too! Nothing like a narrative of a woman breaking free and coming into her own and choosing happiness for herself. Bette Davis is Charlotte Vale, of the hoity toity Vale family of Boston, and her mother is a nightmare stuck in 1912. Domineering and mean, she has Charlotte locked tightly into a shell until it cracks and she is whisked off to freedom at a very kindly psychiatric retreat. Finally free from her mother's control Charlotte begins to become a real person again, and instead of going home she takes a voyage to South America to meet people and learn what it is like to be independent. That's only the first third of the film! It is quite long I'll warn you, but I enjoyed it all the same and I highly recommend watching it!
1940's suiting and fantastic hats, what could be better!
