    1. Just for you dear Bob-

      Tallulah on Bette- “Don’t think I don’t know who’s been spreading gossip about me. After all the nice things I’ve said about that hag. When I get hold of her, I’ll tear out every hair of her mustache!”

    2. She had some choice words for Bette!
      And Bette had some for her ... as when Ed Sullivan offered Davis $10,000 to do an imitation of Bankhead on television:
      "Miss Bankhead isn’t well enough known nationally to warrant my imitating her.”:

    3. And what's really funny, is that Bette tried her damnest to act like Tallulah.... Bette Davis, clearly had benefitted from studying her speech patterns, vocals and mannerisms.

  4. "Codeine and... bourbon."

    Her last words.

  6. charitable, kindness and generosity.

    Tis true and she hid it. She was very generous to those in need, supporting disadvantaged foster children and helping several families escape the Spanish Civil War and World War II.

  7. Catastrophically self-destructive.

  8. Scared Joan Crawford.

    What's that tell you.

  9. political, liberal supporter.

    The Bankheads of Alabama were aristocracy—her grandfather and uncle were both United States senators—and her father went on to become a successful polictian ending as a much admired Speaker of the House under Roosevelt. Tallulah, in turn, was a lifelong passionate Democrat, and took credit—some of it deserved—for helping elect both Truman and Kennedy.

  10. Didn't wear underwear.

    Some of the cast members of Lifeboat complained to director Alfred Hitchcock about the above (since Tallulah had to walk up and down a ladder leading into and out of a tank of water), and he just replied that wardrobe was somebody else's department.

    1. As Tallulah said:

      “Say anything about me, darling, as long as it isn't boring.”
