Questa volta, Palahniuk ci porta a fare un bel giretto nella Hollywood dei Tempi d'Oro (quelli di Bette Davis e Joan Crawford, per intenderci) e ci racconta - a modo suo, naturalmente - la fiaba sulfurea e decadente di Katherine Kenton, una stella del palcoscenico, ma anche una famosa sceneggiatrice alle prese con la peggiore e più inevitabile delle disgrazie possibili: l'invecchiamento. A raccontare questa fiaba c'è una sorta di dama di compagnia, domestica, confidente di Katherine a nome Hazie Coogan, che l'ha accompagnata per tutta la sua carriera attraverso svariati matrimoni, altrettanti divorzi e parecchi interventi di chirurgia estetica. A complicare la situazione contribuisce l'apparizione del giovane (troppo giovane!!!) Webster Carlton Westward III, che riesce a intrufolarsi nel cuore (e tra le lenzuola) di Katherine…

Jezebel (1938)

In 1938, Jezebel was widely regarded as Warner Bros.' "compensation" to Bette Davis for her losing the opportunity to play Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind. Resemblances between the two properties are inescapable: Jezebel heroine Julie Marsden (Davis) is a headstrong Southern belle not unlike Scarlett (Julie lives in New Orleans rather than Georgia); she loves fiance Preston Dillard (played by Henry Fonda) but loses him when she makes a public spectacle of herself (to provoke envy in him) by wearing an inappropriate red dress at a ball, just as Scarlett O'Hara brazenly danced with Rhett Butler while still garbed in widow's weeds. There are several other similarities between the works, but it is important to note that Jezebel is set in the 1850s, several years before Gone With the Wind's Civil War milieu; and we must observe that, unlike Scarlett O'Hara, Julie Marsden is humbled by her experiences and ends up giving of her time, energy, and health during a deadly yellow jack outbreak. Bette Davis won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Julie.

Having previously portrayed England's Queen Elizabeth I in 1939's The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, Bette Davis reprises the role in the Technicolor-and-Cinescope costumer The Virgin Queen. Harry Brown and Mindret Lord's screenplay proposes that Elizabeth's relationship with adventurer Sir Walter Raleigh (Richard Todd) was somewhat more than cordial. Raleigh is depicted as a charming opportunist, who deliberate leads the Queen on in order to further his chances of heading an expedition to the New World. Complications ensue when Sir Walter falls in love with lady-in-waiting Beth Throgmorton (Joan Collins). Not to be believed for a single moment, The Virgin Queen works well on a swashbuckler level, with Davis outacting everyone in sight-even such veteran scene-stealers as Herbert Marshall, Dan O'Herlihy, and Jay "Caligula" Robinson.

Genre: Drama

It's been called "the bitchiest film ever made," and though this may not sound like high praise, much of the allure of All About Eve—the 1950 film starring Bette Davis as a soon-to-be-washed up stage starlet—is found precisely in the catty, drama queen smackdowns that pepper the impeccably written script. This is the film that temporarily rejuvenated Davis' career, immortalizing her as a camp icon, a cigarette in one hand, a martini in the other, pausing only long enough between drags and sips to dole out savagely witty remarks. And yet there's more to the movie than just quickfire snark. This is a story of "insatiable ambition and talent," one that explores obsession, manipulation, and the pressure put on women to be forever young and beautiful. It netted fourteen Academy Award nominations—besting Gone With the Wind's thirteen nods and matched only later by James Cameron's Titanic, in 1997—and eventually won six, including Best Picture.

Aspiring actress Eve Harrington maneuvers her way into the lives of Broadway star Margo Channing, playwright Lloyd Richards and director Bill Sampson. This classic story of ambition and betrayal has become part of American folklore. Bette Davis claims to have based her character on the persona of film actress Talullah Bankhead. Davis' line "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night" is legendary, but, in fact, all of the film's dialog sparkles with equal brilliance.
