Bette Davis


April 5, 1908 – October 6, 1989

One of the biggest names in the golden era of Hollywood, Bette Davis carved a spectacular career for herself without the benefit of being beautiful (her words, not mine.) She accumulated 10 Academy Award nominations – nabbing 2 wins – over the course of 90 films.  Some of Davis’ most iconic films include All About Eve and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?  She was often erratic on set and many considered her difficult to work with.  Her daughter wrote a book about how difficult their relationship was. Kim Carnes wrote a song about her eyes.

Six years after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Bette died in Paris after receiving one of many Lifetime Achievement awards.
