The Girl Who Walked Home Alone: Bette Davis, a Personal Biography

by

"Of Human Bondage", "Jezebel", "All About Eve", "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane". Just this short list of Bette Davis' films, gives an unmistakable sense of the role she played in twentieth-century cinema, as one of the finest performers in Hollywood history. Drawing on an extensive series of conversations that took place during the last decade of Bette Davis' life, this biography draws heavily on the actresses own words. Looking back over the decades, from her teenage decision to become an actress, to the pain and outrage over her daughter's bitter portrayal of her, Davis speaks with extraordinary candour. She explains how her father's abandonment of her, a child reverberated through her four marriages, and discusses the persistent Hollywood legend that she was difficult to work with. Immersing readers in the drama and glamour of movie-making's golden age, "The Girl Who Walked Home Alone" is a startling portrait of an enduring icon. Hide synopsis
