Summer Under the Stars- Bette Davis (August 1st)

Here we are! Well, for some the Super Bowl is in January. Other’s look to Oscar time. However, for plenty of us, it gets no better than this! Summer Under the Stars. Are you ready? Have you been pregaming for drastically lessened sleep in preparation for these delectable cinematic marathons?

This year at Ticklish Business, we wanted to throw ourselves in with both feet. There’s so many stars to celebrate! Everyone has their favorites. So, what we wanted to do was put together everything we have on these legends of the silver screen. This is a celebration of their wondrous careers after all.

Check out our archive of information on each star below, as well as the recommendations and thoughts coming throughout the month on our respective social media pages!

Now… to the good stuff.

Bette Davis is an actress who it took an embarrassingly long time for me to gain an appreciation for. I’ll admit to having a lot of preconceived notions about her work. However, everything changed after I saw Now, Voyager. With each passing film I’ve watched, I’ve gained such an appreciation for her tenacity, her wit and above all, her strength. While I’m still weak with her filmography, I can’t wait to learn more.
