About Bette Davis Autographed Memorabilia & Collectibles
One of the most popular leading ladies in the history of Hollywood, Bette Davis was a liberated woman who shined in an industry dominated by men. With a career that lasted six decades, few have rivaled her in terms of longevity and appeal.
Davis was born on April 5, 1908 in Lowell, Massachusetts. She led a colorful life on stage and made her debut on Broadway in 1929. By 1930, she moved to Hollywood and her career in the movies began. Davis starred in several films under Universal Studious, but it wasn’t until she signed a contract with Warner Bros. that she became a superstar.
Some of her critically acclaimed films include Of Human Bondage (which co-starred Leslie Howard) and Dangerous, which helped her earn an Oscar.
In 1938, Davis was nominated for an Academy Award again for her work in Jezebel. Then, in the following years, she received more nominations for her roles in various films, including All About Eve (co-starring Anne Baxter).
While her ‘50s and ‘60s films were not-so-popular, Davis was once again well-received in 1962 when she played alongside Joan Crawford in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?. She yet again received super-stardom status with Hus… Hush, Sweet Charlotte (co-starring Olivia De Havilland with Olivia De Havilland autographed signed black white celebrity 4x6 photo).
