The Divine Davis,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bette Davis: All About Eve / Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte / The Virgin Queen [DVD] (DVD)
All About Eve is one of the wittiest films ever to come out of Hollywood. Bette Davis as Margo Channing gives one of her finest performances and she is surrounded by a splendid cast all of whom match her. Anne Baxter's Eve is magnificent. In The Virgin Queen Davis repeats her role as Elizabeth 1. It is a glossy, historically dubious affair, but thoroughly enjoyable with Richard Todd proving a suitably dashing hero and Joan Collins - never much of an actress - looking as lovely as any of today's celebrity stars (they don't call them pin up girls any longer). Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte is a neat melodrama with Olivia de Havilland standing in for Joan Crawford - it is enjoyable, although the Crawford/Davis pairing would have made it even more so. A good package this.
