Often referred to as "The First Lady of the American Screen," Bette Davis created a new kind of screen heroine. She was a liberated woman in an industry dominated by men. She was known as an actress that could play a variety of difficult and powerful roles, and because of this she set a new standard for women on the big screen. Independent off-screen as well, her battles with studio bigwigs were legendary. With a career spanning six decades, few in the history of film rival her longevity and appeal.

Feel free to post icons, graphics, fanfiction, polls, YouTube links, film downloads and general appreciation!

Join here for a daily dose of the legend that is Bette Davis!

Hey kids! Remember a couple of months ago when I said I was planning on doing recaps of all of the Bette Davis films I could get my mitts on? Well, if you don't, that's what happened.

Anyway, I've managed to get the first one done: the thrill-ride that is The Bad Sister!


Do head over there and discuss the movie--there's a link to watch it if you haven't before (or if, for some mysterious reason, once was not enough for you). If you've got any constructive criticism on my recap, I'd be only too glad to hear it: what would make it a more enjoyable read, etc.

I hope to have Waterloo Bridge done sometime soon, although, alas, that one probably won't have screencaps.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED to the core at the lack of film requests. DO YOU NOT REALISE HOW MUCH RARE BETTE I HAVE, BETTEFANS?

Anyway, as a test I'm going to talk you through it and have uploaded "June Bride"

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

After you have all five parts use a HJ splitter (download here www.freebyte.com/hjsplit) and then go to JOIN. It'll talk you through the rest (seriously, nothing to it. It is easiest ever. If I managed it...)

This is a MP4. It'll play on I Tunes, VLC Player, Quicktime and possibly a WMA with the right codecs. This WILL play on your I-Pod.

You like it? Then you shudda put a ring on it. Or, you know, request some.
