1stly just check on the "IMDB" they can be pretty reliable on SOME THINGS! such as quotes. at least from my understading. i haven't heard nobody EVER say anything different yet. hehehe & as for "Maryln Monroe" sorry for my misspellin of her name. i have NEVER really care for her. i've alwys thought she was a HORRIBLE actress. the ONLY movie that i have seen her in that she gave a decent perfermance is the classic "Some Like it Hot" (1959) & the ONLY reason i watched that wasn't cause of her. it was cause of another of my favorite actors. the late & great "Jack Lemmon" & for "Tony Curtis' as well! anywys,
as for "M.M." she was doing films in the 40's. i'm NOT saying they were BIG parts. buut she was acting in them. & IF ya look up the late & great "Shelly Winters" Whom i became a fan of when she played "Nana" on "Roseanne" in the late 80's & into the 90's. she was doing movie way back in like (1942) buuut really didn't get a good role until like the early 50's. & her 1st film that she was credited in was some film i can't reacall the name of. in like (1947) so in short both of them did do films before they got really noticed by us people the public. & since i've brought "Shelly Winters" up it just dawned on me those to were pretty close & used to room together back in the day! or so i've read online. & i think in a book i've got. i'll have to find it to make sure i'm right. hehe
Funny, at the beginning of this campy trailer for HUSH...HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE, I realize for the first time that Bette Davis hits Bruce Dern square in the face bullseye with her bouquet.
No surprise. And I'm sure no rehearsal was necessary.

Has anyone seen Dead Ringer w/ Bette; she plays a duel role as twins... it is a little corny, but I liked it.
Glad someone else likes Dead Ringer....
I also liked The Watcher In The Woods.
I liked DEAD RINGER.

Has anyone seen The Nanny? That scared me as a kid.
THE NANNY is wonderful. It's a way, underrated thriller and arguably Bette Davis' last truly good role.
It's a subtle and understated as BABY JANE and CHARLOTTE were baroque.
I have only seen seen The Nanny once, and it was years ago, but it was pretty creepy from what I remember. Hmm... wonder if it is available on DVD?
Oh, and speaking of HUSH... HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE and THE NANNY, they're both coming out (CHARLOTTE for the second time) in April on DVD in one of those "collections" (which also includes ALL ABOUT EVE).
But --- and this is just what I've heard, people --- the bonus material will include several minutes of previously unseen footage of Joan Crawford's scenes as Miriam that she'd filmed before taking "ill" and was replaced by Olivia DeHavilland....
I mean, this is like the Holy Grail to CHARLOTTE fans!
Also, THE NANNY:

When I first watched Hush Hush, I had no idea that Joan was originally in the De Havilland role. I remember telling my partner at the time, "Olivia De Havilland 'acts' in the same way Joan Crawford did." Sort of ironic once I found out Joan was originally in that role.
Here's Bette Davis on WHAT'S MY LINE in 1965, just shortly before cast-member, journalist Dorothy Kilgallen was.........murdered....?
