The legendary Bette Davis made her star-studded debut in this world amid a clap of thunder and a streak of lightning 110 years ago today. Twenty three years later, she arrived on Hollywood soil and was ready to conquer the world.
For the special occasion, I’m proud to present for the third consecutive year, The Annual Bette Davis Blogathon. I’m sure everybody else is just as excited as I am to be honoring Bette. She deserves all the love she receives.
Bloggers, once you have published your entry, please submit your post on the comment section below, and I’ll showcase them as soon as possible. Thank you.
