THE GIRL WHO WALKED HOME ALONE

Bette was a great favorite among impersonators who did impressions of the starts because she has such strong individual characteristics. She considered their attention "a compliment, highly flattering." She particularly enjoyed Charles Pierce's Bette Davis, and called him "supremely talented."

"For a long time, the impersonators didn't do me. I was worried about it. It meant I didn't have a distinct style.

People think I don't like those impersonators who do me. Well, they're wrong. I like it very much, as long as they are very good. The only time I don't like it is if they aren't good, or worse if they're better than I am. I watch them to learn about myself. Until I saw Arthur Blake, I never knew I moved my elbows so much."

there's an interview of her on youtube when she had shrunk greatly and was almost ready to die. you should watch it.

Bette was fearless about going on talk shows after her stroke and bout with breast cancer. Despite being ill and shrunken, she always had an opinion and was often hilarious.

On a side note to Dustin and MM, the Limp Wrist site looks fucking amazing. Bravo to both of you.
