Leading Ladies by the magazine AD

In 1934, Bette Davis—who, by her own estimate, lived in approximately 75 different houses during her life—rented a 1926 Spanish Colonial Revival house at 906 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. The actress lived there with her first husband, musician Harmon “Ham” Nelson. Designed by architect John Byers, the sprawling home was dominated by his signature style of white stucco, heavy wood ceiling beams and clay-tile floors and roofs. “I adore space,” Davis wrote in her autobiography, The Lonely Life. “In the city I want to push away the buildings with my own two hands and let the sky rush in.” Davis, who was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, favored Colonial or English-style houses. “Always it was as much like New England as possible,” she wrote. “Four-posters, bull’s-eye mirrors, Toby mugs, chintz curtains, fireplaces and everything in its place.”

    tiene ese belleza extraña como cuando miras a la luna y está grande y amarilla y te entra el esplín de la noche...Hay! Me encantó la relación amorosa entre ella y ese actor que no recuerdo su nombre...en el bosque petrificado!
