… more than a woman. a play by russell liney. the first paperback edition has been printed and is now available to buy.

My play about Bette Davis in which she faces an uncertain future now that she has reached a critical crossroad in her career path and her life as both a woman and an actress is finished. After two years of concentrated effort to bring it to the public in print for the first time, complete with minor alterations to the story and revised and additional dialogue it is to be published in a full-length, unabridged version.

MARKED WOMAN

Bette was a suffragette of the moving picture industry. Her personal stand for womens equality in the American moving picture industry was monumental at the time (1936) and has become legendary: so has the woman. Her legacy of film performances leaves us in no doubt that she was one of the top three actresses (the other two being Hepburn and Stanwyck) from the golden age of Hollywood film-making that really counted. In spite of her victory and accolades for her acting she paid the ulimate price as a woman…  as you will see.

For now, here’s an appetizer.

BETTE DAVIS AS ROSA MOLINE IN THE FILM ‘BEYOND THE FOREST’

Oh, I’ve made some enemies along the way but I am my own worst enemy. I live by my rules, but by doing so, I’ve consigned myself to a life of loneliness. Loneliness… that’s the price I pay. Life is a lonely thing Bud, unless one meets the right person to share it with. I still haven’t found the right person and I’m not sure that I ever will. But you have! Cherish him, Bud. Keep those embers glowing and you’ll never be lonely again.”

THE LIFE OF THIS GREAT FILM ACTRESS IS A LONELY LIFE
