The great actress Bette Davis never did anything "small" in her life. Her life was a series of great, self created adventures. Bette's grave overlooks the San Fernando Valley from the top of Forest lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills. Legend has it tht she chose the site, so that she could look down on Harry Warner (Warner Brothers) for ever. One thing is for sure, nobody in the entertainment industry could afford to look down on her.
Bette Davis lived in a secluded neighborhood near historic Toluca Lake. Her history, biography and images are collected by The Museum of the San Fernando Valley as part of our Valley Notables Archives.
