At the age of 53, and having no idea that she was good for another 17 projects, actress Bette Davis (1908 - 1989) penned this very in-depth account of her Hollywood career. She lists many of her rolls and co-stars, directors and colleagues but she also spends a good deal of column space remembering her many battles with the crowned heads of the film colony:

"My clashes with the movie moguls began when I was signed to my very first contract by Universal Pictures in 1930. No sooner was the ink dry than they insisted on changing my name . (My full name is Ruth Elizabeth Davis, but I had been called 'Betty', spelled Bette - the French way - since infancy.)"

"'And what name do you have for me?' I asked."

"Bettina Dawes"

"'Oh no you you don't', I flared. 'I'm not going through life being known as 'Between-the-Drawers!' And that was the end of that."
