    The formidable and iconic actress Bette Davis on ‘Parkinson’ in 1975.

    The same year as Shirley Maclaine spoke on a similar subject here.  

    When Bette Davis said she would ‘never ever have done’ nudity, she meant it. She was under contract to Warner Brothers Pictures in the 1930s and went on a one-woman strike because she wanted good directors and good scripts. Mr Warner took her to court and won but as she said “she lost the battle but won the war.” Because she ended up getting both good directors and scripts.
