drama, biography, 85 min.

Two-time Oscar winning actress Bette Davis placed an advert in the Hollywood Reporter in August 1962 for work. Why? Visiting the Motion Picture Academy Library in Los Angeles and the Bette Davis Archival Collection in Boston, Christine began to piece together the true story behind the advert — and the woman. Her meticulously researched play is no mere catalogue of showbiz reminiscences. It is a work packed with drama, intrigue and comedy. This compelling story provides a unique and touching insight into both Hollywood in its heyday, and arguably the finest actress of her generation. Director: Jane Drake Brody. Recommended for: all audiences. Link: artist.
