STARDUST: The Bette Davis Story

The film career of Bette Davis, the most gifted and versatile actress to emerge from the Hollywood studio system, includes a collection of portrayals that offers an unparalleled glimpse into the psyche of the 20th century woman. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon, Stardust: The Bette Davis Story takes the audience on a psychological treasure hunt for the soul of a person so buried in contradiction and self-styled legend that fact and fiction became indistinguishable.

Archival interviews with Davis and her most important collaborators are complemented by original interviews with Jane Fonda, Ellen Burstyn, Gena Rowlands and James Woods, who critique specific scenes from Davis’ greatest films, including Of Human Bondage, Jezebel, Dark Victory, The Letter, Now, Voyager, All About Eve and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
