You wouldn't expect a film about serious illness to be much fun, but Dark Victory is no one-note misery fest - even though it aims to have its audience in floods of tears by the end. Made during one of Hollywood's greatest eras, it's the story of a rich young woman who learns that she has a brain tumour. Bette Davis is brilliant as the woman going from carefree party girl to bitter drunk to dealing with her situation - and equally convincing at every stage.
Sean Penn won an Oscar for this inspiring portrayal of gay rights campaigner, Harvey Milk.
