Customer Reviews

You hardly ever see this one on TV, and it is very good so that is too bad.
calvinnme
The prints are fine and the extras are good including a 4-page booklet with added info on each film.
Mark Norvell
I didn't care for her role in The Nanny but then she was older and probably needed the work.

Format: DVD
This is the second of two boxed sets celebrating the one hundredth birthday of Bette Davis. The other one is from Warner Home Video, and since Bette Davis is often called "the fifth Warner Brother", obviously Warner's has a much larger library of films from which to choose. My main complaint with this set is not that the films are not good, but that two of the films - "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" and "All About Eve" have already been released by Fox under the Studio Classics label. That leaves only three films new to DVD in this set.

As for the three films that are new to DVD, chances are you may have never even heard of them, much less seen them. The problem is that Fox owns the rights, won't let anyone else such as Turner Classic Movies televise them, and would rather televise "Wall Street" ten times a month on the Fox Movie Channel rather than put these older good films on at all.

All About Eve (1950) - This film brought Davis' career back from the brink and set up a very productive second act in her career. Margo (Bette Davis) plays an insecure aging star who helps a very poisonous young ingenue, Eve, (Anne Baxter) get started. As Margo, Davis throws some of the best tantrums of her career. Just when you think there is nobody more evil than Anne Baxter's Eve Harrington, along comes George Sander's Addison DeWitt and kicks her to the curb in that category.

"All About Eve" & "Hush...Hush Sweet Charlotte" are re-issued and re-packaged with new extras in this fine set. New to DVD are "The Virgin Queen", "The Nanny", and "Phone Call From a Stranger". All are encased in their own individual slim-cases with art work. For Davis fans, this edition is completely worth it. A bravura array of Davis performances is featured here. And the performances couldn't be more different: a Broadway star, a haunted Southern recluse, a Queen of England, a British nanny, and the small but pivotal role of a wife of a plane crash victim. The prints are fine and the extras are good including a 4-page booklet with added info on each film. As with all these sets, it just leaves you wanting more. However, this one was worth waiting for. Enjoy.

20th Century FOx doesn't hold many Bette Davis movies so they stash all of them in this fine box. But how? In slimline cases, so kinda cheap, maybe not, but what kind of idiot packs a two-disc edition in slimline case WITH a booklet inside that obvisouly is going to be punched through in the middle several times because that's how the casing works? Only idiots approve these. It's really a low low shot and I would not expect this from ANYONE, not even the cheapest studio ever. It's just unbelievable. And that's supposed to be the special edition movie of the pack!!!!
As for the content, no complaint there, and love the extras on Hush Hush where for the first time I see more than one still of Joan Crawford on the set and there's even a featurette on the backstory.

Did we really need to reissue "All About Eve" and "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte" again? The new "extras" in these (especially those in "Eve") aren't worth forking over the extra bucks.

I was looking forward to the "Charlotte" extras but found them disappointing. There are stills of Joan Crawford's scenes but the actual filmed footage of her as Miriam is not included being either lost or they just didn't include it. There are interviews here with Michael Merrill, Bruce Dern, and Robert Aldrich's daughter but again, it isn't worth buying the box set for this.

The rest of the films are Davis "lesser" films..."Phone Call From a Stranger", "The Virgin Queen" and "The Nanny". Of these three, "The Nanny" is the most entertaining but other than a theatrical trailer and photo stills, no extras are included.

I would rather they have included "Beyond the Forest", "The Sisters", and "Dangerous".

This boxed set is a disappointment. If it was on sale for $20.00 I'd say go ahead and buy it, but at $40.00 to $50.00 for films that have already been released on DVD and for mediocre films, I do not recommend this set.

I only have one thing to say. I love Bette Davis & I have as many of her movies as I can. I watch them over & over. All are great & this is a wonderful way to get many at one time.

My title refers to the fact that the Joan Crawford "Hush,Hush Sweet Charlotte footage is absent despite one poster claiming that there was more than ten minutes included.There are quite a few production stills of Joan Crawford on the set and in scenes.

Since Bette Davis is always worth watching, the set is worth having. If you are buying it (as I did) mainly for Crawford footage; there a'int any!!!

It's wonderful to know that her movies & acting abilities are still being appreciated & will be able to be discovered by new generations in collections such as this, even though they'll have to watch in "black & white"! I'm sure once they're into her movies they won't even notice that. Please keep the Golden Age of Movies actors & actresses talents around with more collections for everyone to learn from & enjoy. Thank you so much
