REVIEW ↠ Bette Davis “Irresistible revelatoryBursts with film lore gossip countless affairs and family secrets” Publisher’s Weekly starred review “This is a truly riveting read chock full of meticulous details juicy anecdotes and profound insight” Liz Smith “James Spada has certainly done his homework and he charts Davis’s climb to fame with a meticulous attention to detail that his subject would surely appreciate and without ever losing sight of the woman who motivated the actress” Time Out London Best selling author James Spada has written the definitive biography of one of America’s greatest actresses Bette Davis Bette Davis participated in over 100 roles as an actress including the films What Ever Happened to Baby Jane Jezebel Dark Victory James Spada is a superb biographer I ve read five Bette Davis biographies and find it impossible to rate one higher than the others Inescapably many details are rehashed across all of them This one I liked not much or less than the others I ve read However if I were recommending which ones to include in your coverage there are so many this would make my listAll the fabulous comical caricatures have redefined our memories of this wonderful actress Just watch her actual films though and you ll rediscover that she was nowhere near as over the top as you might have recalled she had far greater dramatic subtlety and nuance than her impersonators have led us to believe As a woman she was renowned for being earthier than her professional nemesis Joan Crawford and boasted of that making her perhaps the arrogant of the two yet no less adorable I like to make my own mind up about the subjects of biographies and usually canThat Bette Davis was no saint becomes clear enough after covering a few biographies that she was no monster either is also clear She was a fascinating woman and a great great star
