I have a bunch of these AFI awards in VHS. But no DVD! When are we going to see these shows in DVD?
The AFI should be admonished for not finding the legal means to produce these treasures in DVD.
Bette Davis is our greatest film actress. I'm a Kate Hepburn fan, too, but Bette was supreme. This is a fitting tribute, and my one regret is the other Warner great, Jim Cagney, was not there. But each always had warm words for each other. Interesting that the first two actors honored by the AFI were Cagney and Davis. My hat is off to Jack Warner.

The AFI lifetime achievement award special for Bette Davis captured the essence of the star and her body of work. I hadn't seen this special for years and it was nice to see it again. I just wish AFI would release this and other AFI tributes on DVD. Hint, hint.

Bette Davis still reigns supreme, years after her death, as one of the most recognized and beloved icons the motion picture industry has ever produced. There is little doubt that she stands as the greatest star of them all. The American Film Institute got it right when they chose Bette Davis as the first female and first actress to be recognized with the American Film Institute award in 1977. For me, as an actress, only two others stand in her league. Katharine Hepburn and Barbara Stanwyck. As a STAR, no one touches her. Many, many of the great actresses and actors of today, 2012, still recognize her as the greatest ever. Meryl Streep, for one, openly idolizes Bette. Meryl, and Glenn Close, imo, are the only two modern-day actresses that I would put on the same stage as the giants of the Golden Age of Hollywood, stars such as Vivien Leigh, Myrna Loy, Jean Arthur, Carol Lombard, Norma Shearer, Ava Gardiner, Joan Crawford, Irene Dunn, and of course, Shirley Temple, to name just a few.

But somehow, Bette Davis stood head and shoulders above her competition and still reigns supreme. Her combination of star power and great character acting, along with a total lack of ego as far as her appearance is concerned, made of her someone that will never be equalled.

The adoration of the stars and great directors who are present at Ms Davis AFI Life Achievement Award, is palpable. The evening is still magic after all these years, although only found on VHS. When will the AFI smarten up and offer a DVD version of this gem of a moment as Hollywood's finest bend a knee to pay loving tribute to the immortal Davis?

To those of you who adore Bette, If you are lucky enough to find this on VHS, snap it up.

I have always been a huge fan of Davis's ability as an actress and repeated viewings of her films confirm my opinion of her talent. This AFI tribute to her shows her approaching the last chapter of her career, but reveals her as being comfortable within herself and generous with her colleagues. The quality of this DVD is probably as good as one can expect, since it is rather old. After I have satisfied my appetite for viewing it I will doubtless pass it on for others to enjoy.
