Dark Victory (1939)

From NetFlix: Fast living comes easy for Long Island socialite Judith Traherne (Bette Davis): Lavish soirées, free-flowing booze and raising thoroughbreds are among the pleasures in her hedonistic existence. But a horse-jumping accident forces her to come to terms with her lifestyle -- and mortality -- when a handsome doctor (George Brent) discovers that Judith suffers from a potentially fatal brain tumor. Humphrey Bogart costars in this timeless tearjerker. 1939, 104 minutes

A classic. Great acting and moving story.
