Bette is surprised by Ralph Edwards...
21 October 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable entry in the THIS IS YOUR LIFE series has Bette being surprised by Ralph Edwards and then settling down to greet the various guests who arrive to reminisce with her.

WILLIAM WYLER, of course, was present to talk about that famous scene in THE LETTER where they debated over whether Bette should say a certain line ("I still love the man I killed with all my heart") while looking directly at her husband or looking away.

Later in the program, Wyler's star of THE HEIRESS shows up--OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND--warmly greeting Bette after we hear her voice and the announcement comes that she has flown all the way from Paris to be here tonight. She and Bette greet each other warmly, like old friends, and then Olivia tells how frightened she was of Bette when they first did a couple of films together. "Really?" says Bette. "I always liked you, Olivia." Olivia claims that not until their third film together, IN THIS OUR LIFE, did Davis warm up to her. "You were always so damned pretty," says Davis to audience laughter.

Enjoyable show and it's shown once in awhile on the cable Game Network.
