We Have the Stars  Take a Word Challenge - Birds

I’m not a big enthusiast, but I do like some of the great old movies. One of my favorites is Now Voyager with Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains. 

From Wiki: Now Voyager was selected for the preservation in the US National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film ranks "23 on the American Film Institute's 100 years...100 Passions, a list of the top love stories in American cinema. 

And at the end of the movie when the lovers are saying their goodbye at the window, and they agree to remain apart with infrequent visits for the sake of his child (he's married), Jerry asks: 

“And will you be happy, Charlotte?”

And she responds, “Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars.”

As always, thanx for taking a peek!
Peace, pam

The scene from the movie is posted here, and try to get past the 2 of them blowing smoke in each other's faces. I don't know how that never got edited out, even for the times. 

The entire movie is truly worthwhile. Here's just the clip:
