It was on Friday, May 6, 1988 that Bette Davis walked off the set of her last film Wicked Stepmother. Her exit for reported health reasons created a media stir when writer and director Larry Cohen decided to finish the film without her, using the footage he captured during her time on the set and rewriting the film to explain her absence. Davis blasted the film and its director, but when she died months after the film's release, Wicked Stepmother would become forever connected with the legendary star, marking her final big screen appearance.
Wicked Becomes Her revisits the later years of Bette Davis' illustrious film career, including the collection of horror films that kept her in the public eye, but through the lens of her final film - Wicked Stepmother. Though Davis abandoned the film shortly after production began, the story behind the making of the film gives readers a new look at the person behind the star.
By looking at her work on features like What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?; Hush, Hush ... Sweet Charlotte; Dead Ringer; The Nanny, Burnt Offerings and more, readers will discover the drive of a movie star, whose desire to remain active in her later years was so strong that she would justify a film for no other reason than the fact that her name was on the marquee as its star.
Filled with photos and new details behind the production of some of her most beloved films, Wicked Becomes Her offers a new glimpse into the final years of one of the most iconic and successful actresses of the 20th Century.
