Stars......

..... Bette Davis & Joan Crawford, I just don't get it.... one of the classic movie channels is airing back to back flip-flops of their movies today.... one Davis, one Crawford, one Davis, etc.....

.... it is now 2:39PM and I have heard The Missus snuffling in the living room as the credits roll at least twice now.... as I said, I just don't get it....

.... currently playing is 'Possessed' and it's a real humdinger.... lots of screaming, shrieking, maniacal laughter, and crying...... I happened to walk through just as that Osborne fellow was laying out the pre-movie scoop.... "This performance - of a woman driven insane - is thought by many to be Joan Crawford's greatest role," he said.....

.... so on the one hand we have that egghead, Bette Davis.... no chin, completely popeyed, and over-pronouncing everything she says...... and on the other hand we have a woman with caterpillars stapled to her forehead, the square jaw of a lumberjack in drag, and whose best performances come from the fact that she was a psycho in real life and happened to be given roles that allowed her to let it loose on screen.....

.... Bette Davis & Joan Crawford, Jesus...... I just don't get it..... now Jane Powell, Liz Taylor, or Rita Hayworth?..... infinitely more watchable, if you ask me..... and with a lot less screeching....

Bullshit So Far

An ex-boyfriend once described why he was attracted to the young Bette Davis:

"She has a touch of pig," he said.

Yup - screeching is bad. Glad I *can't* even do that... ;)

..... wow, I hadn't thought of that.... that is an interesting idea, Hypersexualgirl...... I suspect that your ex may be right...... Bette definitely had a certain quality about her.. perhaps it was her eyes......

..... and Richmond, no!...... you are as quiet as a mouse!......
