I love the look on Bette Davis‘ kids’ faces when she tells them they’re getting war bonds under the tree. They really shit themselves. They are not pleased. I would not be either.
To be fair, Bette was actually being totally responsible and practical during World War II. Rather than heading to the mall and handing her kids the credit card — she was trying to cut back and help pitch in to “protect her country” and stuff, so we’ll give her that. (Even though she probably got paid bucket loads to shoot this.)
