Bette Davis was born Ruth Elizabeth Davis on 5 Apr 1908 in Lowell, Massachusetts, the eldest of two children born to lawyer Harlow Morrell Davis and his wife Ruth Augusta "Ruthie" Favor, who had married the year before, both aged 22.  Their second daughter Barbara was familiarly called Bobbie and born 25 Oct 1909. Harlow and Ruth divorced in 1915 or 1916 "when Betty was seven".  In 1921, Ruth and her daughters moved into New York City.  Bette attended drama school and worked on the stage for a short time before moving to Hollywood.  For more details see my knol  Ancestry of Bette Davis.

Ex-Lady (1933) starring Bette Davis and Gene Raymond
    Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7 (complete)

Of Human Bondage (1934) drama romance added May 2010, produced by Pandro S Berman
    starring Leslie Howard, Bette Davis
    from the novel by W Somerset Maugham
Leslie Howard is a club-footed medical student who falls in love with the brassy, cold-hearted waitress Bette Davis.  The story follows several years of her coming into, and out of his life, and him carrying a torch for her all the time.  Eventually the bond is broken in a tragic way.  Much more believable than the similar "good girl bad girl" storyline done later by Mickey Rooney in 1950's "Quicksand".

If you see no other Bette Davis movie, see Of Human Bondage.

"Me? I disgust you? You... You! You're too fine! You won't have none of me, but you'll sit here all night looking at your naked females. You cad! You dirty swine!  I never cared for you, not once!  I was always making a fool of ya.  You bored me stiff.  I hated ya.  It made me sick when I had to kiss ya.  I only did it because you begged me... you hounded me!  You drove me crazy!  And after you kissed me, I always used to wipe my mouth.  Wipe my mouth!  I made up for it.  For every kiss, I had a laugh.  We laughed at ya, Miller and me, Griffith and me, we laughed at ya!  Because you were such a mug, a mug, a mug!  You know what you are?  You gimpy-legged monster?  You're a cripple! A cripple! A cripple!" - Bette Davis
