    Bette is one of my fave actresses. Love her for All About Eve and Whatever Happened To Baby Jane- two huge camp classics.

    I think WEHTBJ is one of the most disturbing/tragic films I've seen, she nailed that role.

    Bette Davis is my favorite. I even named my business after one of her movies, because the movie influenced my life so much.

    My brother and I are always quoting lines from WEHTBJ all the time. A great cult classic but sadly a swan song for an otherwise brilliant career of one of Hollywood's greatest actresses.

    That was one of the most awesome things I've ever seen. I knew Joan Crawford would do anything for a buck but always thought Bette had standards. Apparently not!

    That was a great movie. I drove by the house used in the film a few weeks ago here in LA.

    She was amazing. She used to own a house down the street from where I grew up, even met her second husband there. The stories of her sass and parties are legendary. If you so desire, you can rent two of her homes as vacation rentals.

    I would save "swan song" for The Whales of August, that unbelievable film with Lillian Gish, Ann Sothern and Vincent Price as well as Bette Davis.
    She recorded Cole Porter songs, and "They're Either Too Young or Too Old." She is actually a good singer, this was not staged or really coached, as you can see her counting the beats when not singing. Her pitch and rhythm are utterly solid. Grace was not her thing, of course, that was Olivia de Havilland or Celeste Holm.
    I think Glenn Close and especially Gena Rowlands are very much in her category nowadays.

    Oh, but she did make some bad movies!
    She definitely had a few clinkers in her career.
    But so what?
    Overall she put together the greatest body of work of any actor - male or female - in Hollywood history.

    WEHTBG is a performance for which she's never really gotten the full credit she deserves.
    Lots of actors have followed the trail she blazed with this performance - but no actor - prior this movie - would willingly have played old evil and crazy like Bette did in this movie.
    She did it so spectacularly and unforgettably that it started a whole new genre of horror movies.

    And of course Bette could play a vastly wider range of characters than other great film ladies like Hepburn and Bergman.
    Bette gave great performances playing young old rich poor high-class low-class good evil beautiful ugly sane crazy.
    She wasn't limited to only playing characters similar to herself.
    And she never worried about looking pretty the way Crawford and others did.
