Desiccated, post-stroke Bette Davis is my favorite Bette Davis, and with her backwards wig, ever-present cigarette, Patrick Kelly button dress, and jaunty crown, she is the living embodiment of her needlepoint quotation: “Old Age Aint No Place for Sissies.” She’s fearless and plucky, even as Death hovers just off camera. Fabulous.
