It’s 1971.

The dawn of the decade of trash.  She’s the 63 year old Queen of Hollywood.  He’s the host who gets the guests his rivals can’t get near.  Meet Bette Davis.  Meet Dick Cavett.

Using verbatim text and studded with some hilariously un-pc commercials, Bette/Cavett re-imagines one of the most candid TV meetings of all time – sliding down the rose-tinted sunglasses of our perceptions of “the old days” and challenging our tendency to glamorise the past.

Coming up – Ms Davis on drink and drugs in Hollywood and losing her virginity…  We’ll be right back!
