Lady of Film', Bette Davis.
All About Eve (1950): It's all about women.... and their men! From the moment she glimpses her idol at the stage door, Eve Horrington (Anne Baxter) moves relentlessly towards her goal: taking the reins of power from the great actress Margo Channing (Bette Davies). The cunning Eve manoeuvres her way into Margo's Broadway role, becomes a sensation and even causes turmoil in the lives of Margo's director boyfriend (Gary Merrill), her playwright (Hugh Marlowe) and his wife (Celeste Holm). Only the cynical drama critic (Oscar® winner George Sanders) sees through Eve, admiring her audacity and perfect pattern of deceit.
Thelma Ritter and Marilyn Monroe co-star in this brilliantly scripted, acclaimed classic, which won six Academy Awards and received the most nominations (fourteen) in film history. (Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Cert. U - Suitable for all)
Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (1964): Charlotte Hollis (Bette Davis) has been closeted in her mansion, a deteriorating Southern plantation, since the grisly murder of her married lover many years earlier. When the country wants to tear down the house to build a highway, the spinster's relatives and friends appear to rally behind her but each slowly preys on her mind until the gruesome rumorus of the last forty years appear to be coming true...
On hand are cousin Miriam (Olivia de Havilland), Dr. Drew Bayliss (Joseph Cotten), Jewel Mayhew (Mary Astor) and the scariest inhabitant of all, loyal servant Velma (the Oscar-nominated Agnes Moorehead)... (Dir. Robert Aldrich, Cert. 15)
Virgin Queen (1955): Bette Davis turns in a towering central performance as the fearsome queen who tangles with a beautiful young lady-in-waiting (Joan Collins) for the affection of intrepid Sir Walter Raleigh (Richard Todd)... (Dir. Henry Koster, Cert PG)
