  1. Dawn, this has been a very entertaining and in-depth series on Ms. Davis. I especially enjoyed about her lesser-known films, like WINTER MEETING, which I have not seen.

  2. Classic Film and TV Cafe, Thank you. It has also been a wonderful learning experience for me. Bette Davis, has performed in so many wonderful movies. She truly is a very talented actress.
