NOTES

"Bette [Davis] and I did not have a feud going on the set of 'All About Eve'. The studio tried to play that up all during the filming. But I liked her very much. She'd come on the set and go 'S-s-s-s-s-s-s' at me, but it was just a joke between us. That was one of the happiest companies I've ever been in in my life."

Nevertheless, Miss Baxter insisted on running for Best Actress against Miss Davis at Academy Award time. "I had been billed as a star in 'All About Eve'. To be entered as a supporting actress meant I would have had to take a lower billing, and I felt I had worked too hard for all those years for that. One day a friend of mine called me from the Academy and told me the studio was still trying to enter me as a supporting actress against my wishes. She said, 'I know why they're doing it, because they're afraid you and Bette will cancel each other out.' And that's exactly what we did." --From Baxter's The New York Times obituary, December 13, 1985.
