That Was No Lady

"Why am I so good at playing bitches? I think it's because I'm not a bitch. Maybe that's why Miss Crawford always plays ladies." -- Bette Davis on Joan Crawford


  1. To Davis, a bitch was anyone too important to instantly pull rank on Lord over. She was wretched to Lillian Gish on the Winds of Aug set...because Miss Gish far out ranked Davis, as no one living at the time could , in the Hollywood terms they both understood . Davis, grew up paying a nickel to watch Gish movies. In 1987 of who else could that be said

    To have Davis call you a bitch was a complement . It meant you were not instant Hollywood road kill

  2. Another answer to this post is

    Nice to meet you
