#art/#history: 'why am i so good at playing bitches? i think it's because i'm not a bitch.' out of the mouths of total babes...& tonight's subject qualifies. from 1931 right through to that october day in neuilly-sur-seine (1989), she tore up our cinema screens with every last milligram of spirit & fuck she could give. that's not to say she only had the 'baby jane' setting. she could do heartbreaking nuance like nobody's business - &, o, did she know personal tragedy. she was determined, too, &, from 1949, she shrugged off the studio yoke to call her own shots. i loved her in 'little foxes', 'death on the nile' & 'the whales of august'. which films will you watch to honour the birth of bette davis #otd in 1908? 'hollywood always wanted me to be pretty, but i fought for realism.' - bd

why don't you try me?
