| Not as tearful as 'Dark Victory'
Stolen Hours is the remake of 1939's Dark Victory starring Bette Davis. Parts of the movie are very good, because I love Susan Hayward, and her acting always improves a script. The opening setup of the plot is also very clever, but the very famous ending from the original is completely changed-and not for the better.

At the start, Susan Hayward is seen hosting a party; she's dressed to the nines and all her guests are having a marvelous time. Her sister Diane Baker arrives from the airport and joins in the fun, but the fun isn't all it appears to be. Michael Craig is a guest, but he's actually a doctor, brought by a well-meaning friend to secretly evaluate Susan Hayward's headaches and failing health. While that scene is pretty clever, it sure paints Michael out to be unlikable and deceitful. It's very hard to root for him, even when he falls in love with and marries Susan.

I recommend watching the original first, because the story is laid out a little better. If you're a Susan Hayward fan, you'll probably want to watch this one, even though it's a little sad. You probably won't go through as many Kleenexes as the original, though. The ending is pretty lousy.
