Extremely Ugly Bette

For Halloween I don't have anything scarier to post than this quick scribble I did of Bette Davis while watching WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE a couple of months ago. This was during the end scene where she's at the beach and showing something that is not quite remorse....

I also sketched Victor Buono from the same movie. He was one of the great demented actors of all time, equally able at comedy and drama. And always a little scary.

Victor Buono was just made for caricature. Your drawing of him is perfect! I'm surprised I've never seen him caricatured before. I like him best as the hot cocoa swigging deputy sheriff in my favourite Sinatra film, "Robin and the 7 Hoods".

Thanks for the comments. John--doesn't Buono and his mom in this movie remind you of CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES?
Pete--thanks for he tip. you ought to take a stab at Buono from ROBIN--a movie i will make a point of re-watching soon!
