From bestselling author James Spada comes a biography of one of the few genuine Hollywood legends - Bette Davis. Revealing a life replete with scandal, sex, violence, courage and sacrifice, BETTE DAVIS: MORE THAN A WOMAN is the fruit of three years of painstaking research, including in-depth interviews with Davis' relatives, colleagues and friends. It is a portrait of one of the most complex and misrepresented women in Hollywood history, and details many of the trials and traumas that were to shape her troubled life: her strangely close relationship with her mother; her ambivalent attitude towards sex; her possible role in the brain damage of her adopted daughter and her stormy, roller- coaster marriages.
