Edna Best

  1. Bette Davis, Watch on the Rhine, 1942.       Best, Rosemary DeCamp, Irene Dunne, Helen Hayes, Margaret Sullavan were seen for Sara before Davis insisted on the rôle. Despite being unhappy with Lucile Watson as her mother, Herman Schumlim as her director and having top billing for such a support rôle, she soldiered on because the drama was as anti-Nazi as she was.
