Wanted to hear it but all the samples were of the intros. But where can I hear the album? I love the sound of her voice (too sexy). I'm always looking for good music :).

probably on youtube. I liked three tracks. Mostly the ones she sang in her films like "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?" and "Hush, Hush..."

But the radio plays are fantastic. If you're going to buy a track if not the album, I'd get all About Eve, it was performed by all the original cast members.

I'll take a look. I did find one album on iTunes called Miss Bette Davis and really dig it. It says she was sixty when she recorded it. Have you heard it?

I think I'll watch the movies before I listen to the plays. But I have heard a few of those plays. One for Casablanca and the other for The Maltese Falcon. They were alright, I was just happy Bogart (god I love Bogart) performed his part in them. To be honest I'd take the movies any day though.

Here's the Hush, Hush performance on live tv:

Bogart's breakthrough performance was in The Petrified Forest, I got that film about a week ago and it's wonderful, it was adapted by a stageplay. Bette Davis and Leslie Howard star in it as well, you gotta check it out, they also did a film called "Marked Woman", again it's top of the line stuff.

Cool thanks.

There was a time I was huge on Bogart and did my DVD binge thing watching everything I could and of course The Petrified Forest was among them. He is definitely in my top actors. Although Marked Woman I havn't heard of. Looks good. On the queue! My vacation is gonna be bitchin'. Only a film geek could spend an entire stay in Florida watching Bette Davis movies.

Mr. Skeffington? Saw it with Hush... Hush and really dug it, although I liked Hush... Hush more. It was such a downer of a movie but really well done, probably why I liked the other one more.

Blaxploitation is officially on hold till I get to watch some of these movies. I'm feeling nostalgic for the golden age thanks to you! Thanks.

Don't worry about me giving it up, it's one of my favorite genres, just the golden cinema is peaking my interest a little. And thanks for that. I do like.
