Bette Davis Guise

What’s missing?

With the slightly on edge smile, it’s fairly obvious.

The US Postal Service photoshopped a cigarette out of this Bette Davis commemorative stamp issued last month, leaving her sexy gloved hand bereft of her ubiquitous little white stick. Writes film critic Roger Ebert on his Chicago Sun Times blog:

I certainly was. Just like this Babe Ruth stamp turned me into an overweight drunk. And this Hemmingway stamp into a suicidal mini-misogynist. And collecting these Hitler stamps into a neo-Nazi. And this pharmacy commemorative into a fledgling backwoods crystal meth lab operator.
