A Few MORE of Her Favorite Things: Bette Davis
I recently had the opportunity to hear one of Bette Davis’ longtime personal assistants speak at the DTLA city library — she had some fascinating stories about this icon of the Golden Age — or “Miss D” as she affectionately referred to her.
During the Q&A I asked her about a few of Ms. Davis’ favorite things, and I wanted to make sure to update an old post to reflect what I learned. So, as always, below are a few of her favorite things, along with a story or two about why she loved them.
About Greta Garbo, Bette said, "Her instinct, her mastery over the machine [camera], was pure witchcraft."

Several notes in the spirit of doing the right thing... Bette Davis didn't necessarily endorse any of the products listed here, but based upon my research I do believe she really loved these things. That said, if you buy from any of the links included above rather than going straight to the vendor site from Google or another search engine, I may get a portion of your purchase at no cost to you.
