Biography: Bette Davis: If Looks Could Kill (1994)

Leonard Maltin, Robert Wagner, Ann Sothern, Roddy McDowall, Harold Schiff, James Spada and MIchael Davis (Bette's son) are interviewed for this excellent episode of an excellent television series.

If you're familiar with the Biography documentary series then you already know that none of them were greatly detailed but at the same time they gave you all kinds of wonderful information. If someone isn't familiar with Davis then this would be a great place to start as you get clips from some of her greatest movies and we also hear about how she changed Hollywood and why she was one of the most powerful women in the business.

The interviews here are quite nice and especially the comments by Maltin. Getting to hear from Davis' son is another major plus as he gives insight to her life away from the cameras.
