Classics - Giving Betty Davis Her Due On Her 100th Birthday

As a young boy, I can remember my mother being a huge fan of Betty Davis. However, it wasn't until I was about 13 years old that I realized why.

I happened upon one of Davis's films that was featured on the "Movie Of The Week" titled "DEAD RINGER," a devious story about twin sisters in which she played both roles. After the movie was over I was stunned. I then began asking my mother about other films starring Betty Davis and I have been hooked ever since.

Betty Davis was born April 5 and died October 6, 1989 at 81 and her 100th birthday arrives this Saturday. Every time that I watch a Betty Davis film, I think of my mother and our many hours of shared enjoyment of this classic and dynamic actress.
Happy Birthday Betty Davis and thanks for the memories.
