If "Hollywood Queens" of today collide, a flurry of cat fur is the likely result. When Silver Screen Royalty, Bette Davis and Mae West finally met in 1973, these film goddesses formed an instant mutual admiration society. Reflecting upon their lives, loves and careers, their no holds barred conversation, amazingly captured on audio tape gives the viewer a truly unprecedented peek into the minds of these two legends letting their hair down. Director Wes Wheadon and his crew, along with the actresses portraying Davis and West and other participants of this magical evening, are brilliantly cast. Cleverly woven into the live action are vintage audio and film clips, comments from film historians, a personal secretary among others, which make for a very rich visual tapestry. This documentary is a absolute must see for those curious how these two film legends sidestepped the opposition thrown their way as they climbed the ladder of success rung by rung wearing those platform shoes. This feel good documentary will make you want to shout out "Hooray" to Wes Wheadon for having the foresight to slip that tape deck behind the bar!
Victoria Mills playing Mae West, is reason enough to watch this re-enactment of that dinner party given back in Hollywood, 1973!
