All The Boys Think She's A Spy

Birthday Boy James sent me this picture with the subject header "Blog Worthy?" My answer? Heck yes.

In 1976, Miss Bette Davis recorded an album, entitled Miss Bette Davis. It includes her renditions of a few different standards, some spoken word bits, and scariest of all - her in-character rendition of "I'm Sending A Letter To Daddy."

I had almost forgotten about the album. I say almost, because I had the terrifying experience of waking up to some Margo Channing dialogue once. God Bless, iPod Alarm Clock Shuffle.

So here she is promoting the LP on the Andy Williams show, performing a Chubby Checker-esque "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane."

Thanks James, for jogging my memory!
