    If I remember that movie correctly, wasn't she was dressed up as a little girl, pretending to be a child, when she sang that song? Maybe she was trying to imitate the way she did it in the movie.

    You could be right. It's been a long time for me too.

    You both are!!! The time on these posts is only a couple of hours from the time I get up in the morning. Early mornings is my favorite time of the day.

    So you are a morning bird (or is it hen?) @Bess Barber. I am not a nite owl as remember when I posted that I am half a day's time difference from you (US). Good to see you on the Bette thread Bess. I am nursing a cold.. so feeling rather miserable at the moment (almost 9am Sun)

    @Craig Swanson Sorry you are feeling bad. At least they have lots of good over the counter cold meds available.

    Yes. A morning bird (and maybe hen). :D I love those hours when it's still dark and the world around me is quiet and sleeping. My kids said I should move to the middle of a grave yard.

    Bette's debut year. This must have been one of her first films. A star is born!

    Her very first movie.

    Bette Davis in Her First Great Scene (Bad Sister). . The sound is pretty bad, but it's only 88 years old. ;)

    Last nite I watched the entire Bad Sister the first time. Bette made her name playing bitchy characters. Not in her first film tho. She played the sister of the bitchy character..
