Bette Davis Tribute Show
On March 7, film critics Diana Saenger and James Colt Harrison drop by Movie Addict Headquarters to salute Bette Davis, one of the greatest actresses in Hollywood history. Davis received two Oscars for her extraordinary work in Dangerous and Jezebel. She became known as the intense actress who could play a variety of strong and complex characters. The Internet Movie Data Base lists 124 acting credits for this remarkable star.
That list includes such diverse films as All about Eve, Now Voyager, The Letter, The Virgin Queen, A Pocketful of Miracles, Mr. Skeffington, Dark Victory, Dead Ringer, The Catered Affair, Hollywood Canteen and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
An example of the enduring interest in Bette Davis, is Feud -- FX’s new limited series -- which focuses on her stormy relationship with Joan Crawford. Susan Sarandon portrays Davis, and Jessica Lange plays Crawford. What inspired casting!
It should be a treat to hear classic movie experts Diana Saenger and James Colt Harrison discuss Bette Davis’ memorable career. Saenger is the founder of Classic Movie Guide and Harrison is a film historian who contributes movie commentary to a variety of outlets including Classic Movie Guide and Review Express. Both have agreed to reveal their favorite Davis films and performances. They will also share their opinions concerning why Davis became such a successful movie star as well as behind-the-scene information about her films.
Movie Addict Headquarters dedicates this episode to Robert Osborne, the wonderful host of Turner Classic Movies who passed away on March 6. Our guests reveal their fondest memories of their friend.
This Bette Davis Tribute airs on BlogTalkRadio at 4 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. Pacific Time) on Tuesday, March 7, 2017. An archived segment will also be available.
