Cat. #00116631: BETTE DAVIS

Lovely 8x10-inch black and white youthful portrait, boldly signed in black felt-tip marker in her later years and handsomely matted and framed to an overall size of 11x14 inches. Excellent for display. The photo is in good condition, with two extremely light creases, really only visible when one angles it toward a light source, one in the background at the top left, another one slightly below the first, that extends into her hair.  Tempestuous, chain-smoking, two-time Oscar-winning stage and screen star Bette Davis headlined in some of Hollywood's most beloved classics, including Of Human Bondage (1934), The Petrified Forest (1936), Satan Met a Lady (1936), Jezebel (1938), Dark Victory (1939), Juarez (1939), The Old Maid (1939), Essex and Elizabeth (1939), All This, and Heaven Too (1940), The Letter (1940), The Great Lie (1941), Shining Victory (1941), The Little Foxes (1941), The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942), In This Our Life (1942), Now, Voyager (1942), Old Acquaintance (1943), Mr. Skeffington (1944), The Corn Is Green (1945), A Stolen Life (1946), Beyond the Forest (1949), All About Eve (1950), The Star (1952), The Virgin Queen (1952), Pocketful of Miracles (1961), and the cult favorite Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). No longer leading lady material by the early 1960s, she made ends meet with roles in a number of horror, sci-fi and fantasy flicks, including Dead Ringer (1964), Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964), Scream, Pretty Peggy (1973), Burnt Offerings (1976), and The Watcher in the Woods (1980).
