Whitney Stine met Bette Davis in 1972, when she agreed to write a running commentary for his outrageous bestseller on her film career, Mother Goddam. During a friendship that flourished for almost twenty years, he recorded her uninhbited observations about her co-stars, her lovers, her four husbands and career. Here is the divine Miss D., speaking in her own unique voice and with utter candor, about her tempestuous affairs, among them; Howard Hughes, William Wyler ("the love of my life"), and George Brent ("He used to stain my pillowcases with hair dye!").
Bette had a discerming eye for male leads. Laurence Olivier was "the most handsome thing on earth, and it was the image of his sexiness I dreamed about"; Charles Boyer ("short, bald, had a potbelly") and Leslie Howard ("so promiscuous...") did not quite capture her fancy. But Bette preferred to co-star with men, and was loath to praise her female competitors ("Hepburn can be fey. I can't. I don't like ruffles and scarves and all that sort of crap. Helen Hayes is ALL RIGHT. But, I"ve never cared for her very much, you know").
Illustrated with exclusive photographs, many from the author's collection, "I'd love to kiss you..." is an extraordinary accomplishment, as fascinating as a tête-à-tête with Bette herself... a passionate account, right from the heart, of her unforgettable life and career.
