Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Excellent original vintage 8x10-inch black and white publicity portrait with a snipe on the verso announcing her upcoming appearance in The Petrified Forest (1936), boldly signed and inscribed in black felt-tip pen in the 1980s. In good condition, with minor edgewear and handling dings. 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).
