Bette inOf Human Bondage

"Had Bette won for Of Human Bondage the prev yr, Hepburn wld've won for Alice Adams in 1935, n poor Dame Edith Evans wld've won for The Whisperer in 1967."-Claran

"I'll never understand giving Hepburn four competitive prizes when none of her best moments ever touched anything Davis did on her worst day."- /3rtful
