Bette Davis is one of my favourite actresses of all time. I even wrote an epic post about Miss Davis for her 100th birthday. And while she remains one of my favourite actresses of all time, I have to admit she was never a looker. But what Miss Davis may have lacked in conventional beauty she more than made up for, as she had personality, charm, and a wit so razor sharp that her archrival Joan Crawford could not begin to compete with her. She also had a lot of raw talent. Bette Davis could do it all--comedies, dramas, romances, even horror movies. And she did it all well. In the pantheon of classic stars, Bette Davis shines among the brightest.
Having already written a post on her career, I'll simply leave you with a scene from one of my favourite movies in which she starred. Here is Bette Davis as Baby Jane, getting ready for her comeback, in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane.
