After Judith Treherne, affluent 23-year-old Long Island socialite, crashes her horse, it is readily apparent she has a serious medical problem. Her physician, Dr. Frederick Steele, removes a brain tumor, but keeps away from her the fact she has only six months to live. Bette Davis considered this her most personal role; she gives an exceptional performance. Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Original Score.
