"No guts, no glory" was her life motto. This intimate portrait of Hollywood's most disconcerting film star, Bette Davis, traces her life and roles at their original locations. Never the flawless beauty, Bette Davis believed that the key to success was to fight for it. She was absolutely fearless in her approach to unlikeable characters, yet the audience always adored her. The film looks beneath the controversial Hollywood myth and makes Bette Davis come to life, featuring intimate interviews with people who knew the star later in life - including the director of her last film, Larry Cohen, fellow actress Gena Rowlands and, among others, the writer who offered Bette Davis to stay at her house during a hotel strike in New York - just for a night or two... - but Bette Davis loved to surprise everybody.
