Bette Davis on Peg Entwistle

Peg has been depicted as a naïf, a lightweight and a wannabe, but nothing could be farther from the truth. No less a star than Bette Davis vividly recalled seeing her act in “The Wild Duck” in Boston in 1926.  Davis said, “Before that performance, I wanted to be an actress.  When it ended, I had to be an actress, exactly like Peg Entwistle.”
