Stolen Hours is a 1963 British-American drama film directed by Daniel Petrie which stars Susan Hayward in the role of a socialite who is operated on for a brain tumor and then falls in love with, and marries her surgeon’s colleague. Also in the cast were Michael Craig, Edward Judd and Diane Baker.
It is a remake by United Artists of a Bette Davis film, Dark Victory (1939), with Hayward in Davis's role. The time frame was updated and the locale changed to England. It was shot at Shepperton Studios and on location around Britain including at Fowey in Cornwall.
The US title was Summer Flight.
A neurotic jet-setting socialite (Susan Hayward) is diagnosed with a brain tumor and told she has only a year to live. She falls in love with her doctor (Michael Craig), and struggles to turn her life around before she dies.
