Bette Davis would have turned 104 today. The clip below, in which Davis sings "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?," is from the December 20, 1962, episode of The Andy Williams Show. ("What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?," song lyrics: "She could dance! She could sing! Make the biggest theater a ring! ... I see old movies on TV. And they're always a thrill to me. My daddy says I can be just like her. How I wish, I wish, I wish I wish I were!")

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? was released that year, earning Davis her tenth – and last – Academy Award nomination. Robert Aldrich directed the sleeper hit, which also featured Joan Crawford and Victor Buono. The beginning of the "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" song, minus the lyrics, can be heard on the radio right before the film's grand finale.

Davis won two Oscars, for Alfred E. Green's Dangerous (1935) and William Wyler's Jezebel (1938). Her other nominations were for the following: Edmund Goulding's Dark Victory (1939), Wyler's The Letter (1940) and The Little Foxes (1941), Irving Rapper's Now, Voyager (1942), Vincent Sherman's Mr. Skeffington (1944), Joseph L. Mankiewicz's All About Eve (1950), and Stuart Heisler's The Star (1952).

Davis was not nominated for John Cromwell's Of Human Bondage in 1934. That led to such an outcry that the Academy allowed write-in ballots for the winners. I should add that All About Eve earned her a Best Actress citation from the New York Film Critics Circle.

Bette Davis died of cancer in 1989.
