Ruth Elizabeth Davis, better known as Bette, was born 100 years ago today. In her 81 years on Earth, she accumulated more than 100 film and television roles, 10 Oscar nominations, four husbands, two Oscars, one Emmy and lots of enemies. Her career began with The Bad Sister and ended 68 years later with a Wicked Stepmother. She appeared in melodramas, horror pictures, gangster movies, women’s weepies, Disney flicks, the occasional comedy, and my favorite movie of all time. She was the first female president of AMPAS.
