30 Gorgeous Portrait Photos of Bette Davis During the Filming of ‘Jezebel’ (1938)

Jezebel is a 1938 American romantic drama film released by Warner Bros. and directed by William Wyler. It stars Bette Davis and Henry Fonda, supported by George Brent, Margaret Lindsay, Donald Crisp, Richard Cromwell, and Fay Bainter. The film was adapted by Clements Ripley, Abem Finkel, John Huston, and Robert Buckner, from the 1933 play by Owen Davis Sr.

The film tells the story of a headstrong young Southern woman during the antebellum period whose actions cost her the man she loves.

The Turner Classic Movies Database states that the film was offered as compensation for Bette Davis after she failed to win the part of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. Despite a radio poll showing Davis the audience favorite for the role in that film, David O. Selznick never seriously considered her for it. Jezebel was her second Best Actress Oscar win after winning for Dangerous three years earlier. This win established her as a leading lady from this point on.

These gorgeous photos captured portraits of Bette Davis during the filming of Jezebel in 1938.
