Happy Birthday Bette Davis!

(April 5, 1908 - October 6, 1989)

Acting should be bigger than life. Scripts should be bigger than life. It should all be bigger than life.

"To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy."

film meme» eight female characters [8/8]: Margo Channing

"Don’t get up. And please stop acting as if I were the queen mother."

Margo Channing, a five-foot-two package of energy, is an acclaimed actress with the talent and timeless beauty that allows her to play twenty-year-olds at age forty. “An attractive, strong face. She is childish, adult, reasonable, unreasonable—usually one when she should be the other, but always positive. She pours a stiff drink.”

Margo Channing is a successful actress who’s spent decades building her career. She has everything she wants except a man of her own, meaning marriage. She loves Bill Sampson, but he’s eight years younger than her, and she’s worried he really wants a young woman. Kind-hearted, Margo takes in her avid fan, Eve. After a month Margo suspects Eve isn’t as innocent as she appears. Margo has to fight her friends when she drops her support of Eve. Margo loses Bill because of her jealous rages over Eve. Margo tries to put her situation in perspective, admitting that she regrets dropping her personal life for a career. Margo gets Bill back; decides to marry him right away and spend more time being a wife than being an actress. [x]
