Bette Davis, All About Eve
Ruth Elizabeth Davis was born April 5, 1908, in Lowell, Massachusetts and would go on, one day, to take Hollywood and the world by storm! Bette Davis is one of those stars who I am convinced was born with “it.” She had acting and star quality in her blood and boy did she ever know what to do with it!
If you aren’t familiar with Bette Davis’ movies, I hope you’ll spend some time going through her filmography.
Bette Davis, Dark Victory
Though I love all (except one!) of the Bette Davis movies I’ve seen, my top six personal favorites, and what I’d call “essential Bette Davis films” are….
Dark Victory (1939)
In This Our Life (1942)
Now, Voyager (1942)
All About Eve (1950)
The Star (1952)
Just please don’t let “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” be the first (or second, or third, or fourth…) Bette Davis movie you watch. You’ll never guess which of her films is the one I don’t like!
