Description

Bette Davis was one of the greatest acting talents the screen has ever known. She was also one who aroused controversy: her legal battles with Warner Brothers; her four husbands; the shocking book written by her daughter. In this fascinating, in-depth biography Barbara Leaming has had numerous conversations with those closest to Bette Davis - her friends, lovers, associates and family members (including her daughter) - and has also drawn on Davis's personal diaries, scrapbooks and unpublished letters. The result is a fascinating portrait that redefines one of Hollywood's most misunderstood legends.show more
