The Bette Davis Story takes us on a psychological treasure hunt for the soul of a person so buried in contradiction and her self-styled legend that fact and fiction became indistinguishable. Through film clips, newsreel footage, photos and interviews with Davis's Hollywood contemporaries, director Peter Jones paints a mesmerizing portrait of a complex cinema legend. Narrated by actress Susan Sarandon.
