“Bette had a magnificent instrument, magnificent body behavior. She was a small woman, but she came into the movie frame with a rush, as if she owned the light and couldn’t wait for the arcs to warm her face.” - Robert Wagner
The first person to accrue 10 Academy Award nominations: Bette Davis.

Which performance is your favorite?
"By the time LIFE magazine put Bette Davis on its cover in January 1939, the 30-year old actress had already... won two Oscars… There was no question that the Massachusetts native was one of the most electrifying movie stars of any era.” - Ben Cosgrove
Bette and her stand-in, Sally Sage, on the set of SPECIAL AGENT (1935).
In her review of DANGEROUS (1935), E. Arnot Robertson wrote:

“I think Bette Davis would probably have been burned as a witch if she had lived two or three hundred years ago. She gives the curious feeling of being charged with power which can find no ordinary outlet.”
Bette was nominated for 3 Golden Globes - her first nomination coming for ALL ABOUT EVE (1950).

In 1974, she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."
Happy New Year!
“You either have guts or you haven’t... I found her a worker, not a daydreamer.” - Bette on working with Debbie Reynolds in THE CATERED AFFAIR (1956)
