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.

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