Bette Davis, actress on stage, TV and in films, she portrayed strong women. She was the first female president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, won two Academy Awards and was the first woman to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute.
In my view, she’s one of the all-time great movie stars and actresses. I thought she was a great beauty, too. I just loved her looks. She is still quite a character, very determined and strong, and she refuses to concede an inch. I suppose that is what has kept her alive. - Lauren Bacall
