In November, Friday Night Flicks, the Belfast Free Library's free movie series, will pay tribute to one of Hollywood's greatest stars — Bette Davis. All the films will be shown, free of charge, at 7 p.m. in the Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St.

On Nov. 2, Davis costars with Paul Henreid and Claude Rains in the definitive romantic melodrama, “Now Voyager.” Charlotte Vale (Davis) is a lonely spinster who recuperates from a nervous breakdown and blossoms into a confident, attractive woman, only to fall in love with a married man.

Davis plays the villainess in “The Letter,” a drama based on a novel by Somerset Maugham, which will be shown on Nov. 9. She commits a murder and claims self-defense, but an unexpected letter may contain information that can ruin her well-laid plans. “The Letter” was directed by the great William Wyler.

Joseph L Mankiewicz wrote and directed “All About Eve,” the all-time classic tale of an aging actress and the ingénue who seeks to displace her in the Broadway pecking order. Anne Baxter and George Sanders also star in this acclaimed film, which won seven Academy Awards. “All About Eve” will be presented on Nov. 16.

To usher in the holidays, “ The Man Who Came To Dinner” will be screened on Nov. 30. Seeking a change from her dramatic roles, Davis insisted on a part in this adaptation of the hit Broadway comedy by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. A great cast featuring Monty Woolley, Ann Sheridan and Jimmy Durante shares the screen in the story of possibly the worst holiday house guest of all time.
