Who can be romantically linked to Bette Davis...and how closely?

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)


[referring to her fourth husband, Gary Merrill]: "Gary was a macho man, but none of my husbands was ever man enough to become Mr. Bette Davis."

Desperately wanted to win a third Best Actress Oscar for What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) as three wins in the leading category was unprecedented. (Walter Brennan had won three Oscars, but all of his were in the supporting category.) It was the general feeling among Academy voters that while Davis was superb, the film was little better than a pot-boiling exploitation film, the kind of movie that doesn't deserve the recognition that an Oscar would give it.


Each of her four husbands were Gentiles, while her friend Joan Blondell's husband Michael Todd was Jewish. Blondell called Davis' brace of husbands the "Four Skins.".
