  • Miss Bette Davis and David Letterman literally wrestle on the matt!

    On March 26th, 1987, ten days from her seventy-nineth birthday, the legendary actor, Miss Bette Davis. who was always-a-sport-to-be-made-fun-of says, "Sure," after Mr. Letterman asks if she is willing have a few goes wrestling with him on the floor. Frail, suffering from terminal cancer, shortly after having a stroke and a year and a half before her death, the elderly 2 time Oscar winner, 12 time Oscar nominee, dressed in a flower-ladden hat and colorful dress to match, submits to being being bullied by David Letterman. As he handily flips Bette Davis to her back, her still-shapely legs are flailing all over the place up in the air. Watching Bette and David go to it on the matt is a classic to the tune of being hysterically historical!
