Queen Bette

Actress Bette Davis (1908-1989) was evidently fond of Queen Elizabeth I as seen in this Christmas season photo taken in her Hollywood home in the early 1980's. Framed portraits of Elizabeth can be seen on the left.

Photo taken from the collection of Bette Davis' former personal assistant Kathryn Sermak

Davis played Elizabeth I twice on screen: 'The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex' (1939) and 'The Virgin Queen' (1955).
