My All-Time Favorite Bette Davis On-Screen Moment?
Wow, there are just so many to choose from (scenes from "Jezebel", "Dark
Victory", "Now, Voyager", "All About Eve", "Whatever Happened to Baby
Jane", etc.). But if I had to pick just one it would probably be that
virulent, invective-laced tirade that she directed at Leslie Howard in
"Of Human Bondage". Not only was this scene as raw and emotional as it
gets (without being gonzo/over the top, that is), the fact that it took
place in her first starring role (and garnering her first Oscar
nomination) made it even more amazing, I think. Youza.
