The arrival of an ex-lover on a young woman's wedding day sets in motion a chain of events which will alter her and her cousin's lives forever.
Bette Davis's characters in both The Old Maid and Now, Voyager were named Charlotte. They both were involved with a child named Tina. Bette starts out in similar makeup in Now, Voyager to the makeup she ended up in in The Old Maid. In both films she played characters referred to as "old maids".
A woman never stops thinking of the man she loves. She thinks of him for years in all sorts of unconscious ways. In thinking of all sorts of things, a sunset, an old song, a cameo on a chain.
The song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" is heard when Charlotte arrives at the train station to meet Clem. The scene takes place in the year 1861 as evident by the date on The Philidephia newspaper announcing Delia's wedding in the opening scene however the song was written and published two years later in 1863.
The opening credits are shown on facsimiles of wedding invitation cards.
