Bette Davis Classic Movies
Bette Davis made so many wonderful classic movies dating back to the 1930s. She was an incredible, unique actress, an exceptional claim to fame all her own. She was good at being bad, both in movies and in her day-to-day life!
While in many ways Bette Davis could appear bigger than life, she was also vulnerable in her own ways, just like any one of us. She described the last three decades of her life as a “my macabre period“. She hated being alone at night and found growing older “terrifying”. I should think many of us relate to those feelings. During her life, she spent the majority of her wealth supporting her mother, three children, and four husbands.
She was amazing, sassy, tough and lovable all at the same time – not to mention a real treat to watch, no matter her role.
Quotes From Bette Davis
- I wouldn’t piss on Joan Crawford if she were on fire.
- Getting old is not for sissies.
- What a fool I was to come to Hollywood where they only understand platinum blondes and where legs are more important than talent.
- To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy.
- I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I think I just can’t play myself. I don’t know how! But, if you give me a drink – give me a cigarette – give me a gun – I’ll play any old bag you want me to. I just can’t play myself!
- The weak are the most treacherous of us all. They come to the strong and drain them. They are bottomless. They are insatiable. They are always parched and always bitter. They are everyone’s concern and like vampires they suck our life’s blood.
