Cavell once again brilliantly unites his two loves, film and philosophy, using detailed and perceptive musings on melodrama to reflect on philosophical problems of skepticism, psychoanalysis, and perfectionism. As he shows, the fascination and intelligence of such great stars as Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, and Barbara Stanwyck illuminate, as they are illuminated by, the topics and events of their beloved and enduring films: Letter from an Unknown Woman, Gaslight, Now Voyager, and Stella Dallas.
