Beverly Hills 1938: Bette Davis hosted a lavish soiree for her fellow pet loving celebs in order to raise money for a new animal shelter in the Los Angeles area.
Do you believe in following sudden impulses?

"I just don’t want to get married, Dwight. I don’t want life to settle down around me like a pan of sour dough. I don’t want it one little bit."
How about A Free Soul? In that film she [Norma Shearer] was a confident young woman who sees a handsome fellow and goes after him for purely carnal reasons. She isn´t trying to forget a broken heart. She is just having fun. How often does that sort of woman turn up in modern movies?
