Photo of Bette Davis & a Turkey (Because Ann Dvorak Skipped Town)

Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 332

Davis Turkey

Author Charles Tranberg posted this festive photo of Bette Davis on his Facebook page yesterday and it’s so fabulous that I am borrowing it. Plus, I do not have any comparable images of Ann Dvorak in my collection. I am guessing this one of Bette is from 1932, and if that’s the case, Ann was far from Burbank at the time because she was traipsing around Europe with husband Leslie Fenton. Had Ann stayed home that year, I would imagine the pilgrim costume and turkey would have been thrown her way for some equally celebratory Thanksgiving pics. But, she did skip town which resulted in a woeful dearth of Ann Dvorak/turkey photos in this world. Still, I think Bette makes a nice substitute.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    I have to say it’s kind of a drag to not have a photo of Ann Dvorak dressed up as a pilgrim and carting a turkey. I guess there’s always the photo of her with the giant firecracker, so she wasn’t completely spared!
