Fasten Your Seatbelts

"Don't think I don't know who's been spreading gossip about me...After all the nice things I've said about that hag! When I get hold of her, I'll tear out every hair of her mustache!" - Tallulah Bankhead on Bette Davis


  1. a day without a quote from tallulah's
    like a day with tallulah, but she has a
    sock stuffed in her mouth.

    it's late.

  2. tallulah and tennessee at a party, and tallulah jealously points a very thin, pretty starlet, and exclaims..."THERE'S anorexia nervosa"

    tennessee responds....o tallulah, you know everyone...

  3. she hung out with dementia precox.

  4. Whether intentionally or not the look of Bette's Margo Channing is surely based on that Tallulah style, even Edith Head's dress is very Tallu ...

    My very favourite Tallulah quote is the one with the weekend guest being woken up by the butler offering a large gin and tonic - Tallulah sweeping by says "better drink it darling, there won't be any more served until after breakfast".
