The fact that this house is just up the street from the sisters’ Hollywood home in ‘Whatever Happened To Baby Jane’ had an influence on our design. Torchieres from the golden age mixed with 1970’s mid-century furnishings upholstered in Art Deco downtown LA fabrics all pay tribute to Hollywood’s hey-days. Classic Hancock Park Home designed, renovated, and added onto to evoke the Golden Age of Hollywood by Frederick Cox Architect, P.C. Italian Terrazzo Tiles by Paris Ceramics. Heirloom furnishings.

"When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a women gives her opinion, she's a bitch." 🖤
Bette was never afraid to say exactly what she thought. Whether it be on a difficult subject or an easy one.
Having a quailty like this frightened many directors and producers that she worked with because if she was unhappy she would say and not hold any opinion back. This is why this quote is so important to how society viewed women because she were meant to be the "weaker sex." Looking at icons liked Bette Davis this is hysterical because of what they achieved and how they went about achieving the success they did.
It is sad really because eventhough time has moved on, some people still view women as weaker because of their arrogant manner. But the legends from old hollywood prove that women were much wiser than most men gave them credit for.

"I've played quite as many calm, heroine-type women as I have a Jezebel-type person. But the Jezebels are always remembered more, because people are fascinated by a woman like that more than by just a heroine. I was always challenged by women like this, because it was really something to work with, and it did become known as a 'Bette Davis part.' I have no regrets about that because I believe unless you get a category, you just have no hope. You must have an identification of some kind. It doesn't mean that you always have to play this, and I work very hard to play other kinds of parts. This is my identification.
Personally, I've never been able to figure out really what I am like or what I'm not really like. I could always understand my character on the screen better than I could understand myself. And when I had to play myself in Hollywood Canteen and Thank Your Lucky Stars, I was utterly lost. Utterly. You cannot imagine." -Bette (photographed in 1944) ❤️
"There was more good acting at Hollywood parties than ever appeared on the screen." -Bette 💫
