Bette Davis Movie Favorites


Bette Davis was not afraid to play a very unlikeable character in Of Human Bondage. Although the movie is over 70 years old you should not be afraid to watch the performance that announced Bette Davis as a great actress.


Bette Davis didn't get to play Scarlett O'Hara but in Jezebel she was Julie Masden another willful southern girl in this story of the prewar south.


Bette Davis was a socialite who learns she is dying of a brain tumor in Dark Victory. This is said to be her favorite role.


Is she going to get away with murder? Bette Davis plays a Singapore plantation manager's wife who shoots her lover and claims self defense in The Letter.


Lillian Hellman wrote a Broadway play called The Little Foxes about the greedy matriarch of a southern family. Bette Davis took the role and made it her own.


After all the dark characters Bette Davis played we think you might need some laughs about now. She took a supporting role to be part of the cast of The Man Who Came to Dinner. It's not The Wedding Crashers but there's lots of amusement to be had in this old fashioned comedy


Don't let's ask for the moon when we have the stars. One of our all time favorite movie lines. Bette Davis pulls out all the stops as a duckling who turns into a swan and falls in love with a married man in Now, Voyager.


It's one of the best screenplays ever written and it gave Bette Davis her greatest role -Margo Channing. A story of ambition and betrayal on the Great White Way and a very "bumpy night" All About Eve.


What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? - Some may call this movie "dated" but we call it a Hollywood legend smackdown. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford play two aged sisters who have, shall we say, a very complicated relationship.


This wasn't Bette Davis' last movie but it's the one we are going to leave you with. Two elderly sisters( Lillian Gish was 95 and Bette Davis 79) have come to their cottage in Maine for what could be their last summer together. Not a lot of plot, not a lot of drama, just a quiet touching picture of aging and family. The Whales of August.
