I could watch it over and over. Did you ever see "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford? That was good and creepy. Good one for this time of year.
Yep, love Bette Davis. I knew a girl my age in high school and also went to our church,
the song 'Bette Davis Eyes' seemed to be for her. Not an attractive girl but I swear she
could pass for Bette Davis daughter because of her eyes.
I grew up in Chicago land in a very strict family...adopted by my pentecostal grandparents.
My grandfather went to bed after the ten pm news every night and my grandmother didn't
arrive home from work until about 2:30 in the morn. I had my own little tv rigged up to
my light switch. I'd lay in bed at night, watch tv til 2am or until I heard my grandmother
come home, then I'd pull a string.....off would go the light and the tv. At that time, there
was the 'LateShow' and after that 'LateLateShow' and after that 'LateLateLateShow'. I feel
like I have watched every old classic and new classic there is. Just a couple of days ago
they had Bette Davis movies on TCM. I watched for the millionth time, Hush Hush Sweet
They had very good actors and good movie plots in the old days....and they didn't have
all the camera work, etc as they have today.
A couple days ago on TCM I watched a 1929 movie 'Coquette' and I had never seen that
one before and altho I have no desire to see it again, it was actually very good. I had to
laugh at the college boy attire in it because he wore baggy plaid golf type pants and a
diamond pattern sweater with a stiff collar and tie underneath.
