Just finished watching the movie "Hush, Hush, Sweet Cahrlotte" on AMC

Was that Bette Davis' REAL hair?

I do not remeber her ever having it quite that long? It was VERY pretty!:cheese:

I seriously doubt it.

I think it was probably a wig, too. Eesh, that movie scared the stuffing out of me!

I vote wig as well -- plus very good scary movie.

I guess I should watch that movie again, for the only image I have of Ms. Davis in a horror movie is that gawd-awful mess she wore in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane!"

Yes, she seemed to be cast a a psycho in most of the movies before she died? Weird, considering that she was such a glomor girl in the other eras??

Yes, it was a very scary movie, but I think she sort of "got justice" at the end? Oliva DeHaviland got what she so justly deserved!

I wish it had been her real hair, she looked very pretty with it, even as an "old lady!":)

Ya, Bette Davis in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" was scary, but the film wasn't. If you do a google image search on her, none of her hair styles look any longer than shoulder length.
