I’ve never met Bette Davis. In fact, I was born several years after her death in 1989. But, if it hadn’t been for her, I’m not sure I’d be alive today.
I struggle with depression, and despite therapy and medication, I’ve had some pretty bleak times in the past year or so. One night I was up obscenely late, channel-flipping, eating ice-cream and feeling generally worthless. I came across “All About Eve” just as Margo was running down the stairs to catch Bill and Eve in mid-conversation. I was hooked. (This wasn’t my first encounter with Bette, I’d seen “Dangerous” years before, but this is the one that sparked my interest in her.) About a week later I came across a copy of her autobiography, “The Lonely Life,” at a used bookstore. I bought it on a whim and stayed up all that night reading it. I was moved, I was inspired. Bette’s story is a classic tale of someone rising from humble beginnings, overcoming obstacles, and changing the world. It was just the story I needed to hear.
Now every time I feel lost, or hopeless, or worthless I turn to one of Bette’s films and forget my problems for a little while. I think about a strong person who didn’t take no for an answer and who succeeded without being “traditionally beautiful.”
So I’d like to take this moment to wish Bette a happy birthday, and to thank her (wherever she is) for her continuing encouragement. (completelyunproductive)
Today is the 104rd birthday of the incomparable Bette Davis – as formidable, headstrong, fiery and mesmerising onscreen as she was in her private life. The biggest stars of her generation, Davis garnered ten Academy Awards nominations, racked up four husbands, and provided the gossip columnists with reams of gleeful coverage of her long-standing feud with fellow mega-star Joan Crawford.
With those enormous eyes, throaty laugh, and imperious lip-curl, Davis was a complete one-off. As unforgettable tearily smoking her way through the last lines of Now, Voyager, or swaggering across the screen in the sublime All About Eve as fading star Margo Channing – equal parts acid-tongued chutzpah and brittle-edged pathos.
