Excellent writing. Thanks.


Great job, Kim. I alternate being attracted and repulsed by her in films (especially during the 40s). Beyond the Forest is a wonderfully unique film for it's time. It blows me away that she was able to play such an independent woman (crazy, but independent none the less)

What a dump! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q692iEqZEa4


Zowie, you are on a tear of late. This is just superb, absolutely worthy of La Davis. Funny you should mention that famous exchange on the All About Eve set that so offended Celeste Holm. Davis was rude, of course, but I too always figured she was saying "bleh, don't be such a phony."

And that top publicity still must be one of the loveliest shots of her I have ever seen.

Please keep these pieces coming, Kim. It's rare to find articles written with such effusive passion for their subjects, while abeing full of great information and reminding readers what these stars should be remembered for. I never knew I liked Bette Davis until I read your piece. Great work.

I've always been a Bette Davis fan, but I saw "Cabin in the Cotton" for the first time last night (I know, I know), and Bette was amazing. I literally could not take my eyes off her when she was on screen. So young, so blonde, and such a bitch - awesome!
