i watched 'all about eve' the other day and she's so sharp and brilliant in it.. i think she's one of those people who grow even more beautiful with age.
it's amazing how cool she could be in an evening dress, i noticed she even had pockets in it:p

I love how she hated Joan Crawford. One of my favorite quotes of hers is when she said that the only male that Joan hadn't slept with at Universal was Lassie the dog haha. Heres a funny paragraph I found on a website of hers:

Joan Crawford and Davis had feuded for years and during the making of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" Bette had a Coca-Cola machine installed on the set due to Joan Crawford's affiliation with Pepsi. (Joan was the widow of Pepsi's CEO.) Joan got her revenge by putting weights in her pockets when Davis had to drag Crawford across the floor during certain scenes.

Oh dear.

I adore "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" but knowing that they really hated each other makes me love the movie even more.

Hehe...when I was working Fraser's Autographs in London, they had a whole box full of hats owned and worn by Bette Davis - me and my colleagues took a whole bunch of silly pics of us wearing them and pouting with red lipstick! She had such a cute looking face - not really knock out beautiful but so attractive!
