'I have been uncompromising, peppery, intractable, monomaniacal, tactless, volatile, and oftentimes disagreeable. I suppose I'm larger than life.' And who would argue with Bette Davis? Lavishly illustrated with film stills and Hollywood portraits, this book traces her life from 1908, when she was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, to her death in France in 1989, and, film by film, it follows a remarkable career - from The Bad Sister (1931) to The Whales of August (with Lillian Gish) in 1987.
