Thank you SO much Movie Gal and James! It makes me feel SO HAPPY to know how people are feeling about my thread!

 

But, I won't be able to post any new pics or threads here for four or five days because I am working on the 21st Unofficial Programming Challenge, sorry! But anyone who wants to post something here can while I'm working!

Sorry to resurrect this thread...thought it might be the best to add photos to.

I'm reading Charlotte Chandler's biography of Bette and just love it! It's full of real quotes from Chandler's conversations with Bette & quite revealing. I'm sorry, but I just love Bette & her attitude/observation about Hollywood movie making. 

Realizing I was only a half hour away from her birthplace in Lowell Mass, I decided to take a drive to see it. Lowell is a pretty town populated with fancy churches & beautiful Victorian style homes. There is a nice placard on the house in lieu of numbers.

I wish Universal would digitize "The Bad Sister" (1931). I think it was one of three films Bette did for Universal before they cut her loose and George Arliss brought her to Warner Brothers. That way there would at least be a chance TCM might show it. It has Bette AND Humphrey Bogart, except at the time both were billed below Sidney Fox and Conrad Nagel.  Bette is dressed up so plainly in this film. However, it is a real hoot and I think most TCM viewers would enjoy it.

The Brown Wren as she was called...

I used to see Charlotte Chandler around town a lot, at events and various places. She had a lovely, old-fashioned style. I remember referring to her as the last Gibson Girl.
