  1. WHERE were these wonderful things when I was putting eye patch pix on FaceBook?

  2. And poor Ms. Davis had the unenviable task of having to overact with just one eye! She pulled it off, though...

  3. I must revisit this film immediately!

    It would make a great double bill with either Mildred Pierce or Mommie Dearest.

  4. MC - I expect an MC-as-Mrs. Taggart costume this Hallowe'en.

    Poseidon3 - As if we ever doubted her!

    MJ - It would make a great double bill with either Mildred Pierce or Mommie Dearest. And that, of course, is our criteria for most of our favorite films.

  5. Ideally, I'd pair it with Olivia deHavilland's "That Lady."

    TJB - That costume would be a cinch for me...though I rarely go sleeveless. Remind me to send you pix of me as Margaret DeLorca!

    Favorite line in Anniversary: Bette commenting on her daughter-in-law "My GOD she's scummy!!!"
