After her graduation from the Cushing Academy, Bette Davis attended the John Murray Anderson's Dramatic School where she excelled.  She immediately found acting work on Broadway.  She was signed by Universal in 1930, but her films did not do too well and producers thought that she wasn't attractive enough to be a major star.  In 1932, she signed with Warner Brothers Pictures and after pivotal roles was a screen sensation. 

In 1936, her pay was suspended from Warner Brothers because she would not accept a role she deemed unworthy of her talent.  Bette Davis tried to sue the production company to release her from her contract so that she could find work else where.  She lost, but Warner Brothers began using her in films again beginning with Jezebel for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress. 

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bette Davis worked to support the war effort by selling War Bonds.  She also crossed the color barrier by performing for African-American WWII troops alongside Hattie McDaniel and Lena Horne.Bette Davis  She co-created the Hollywood Canteen, a nightclub free for servicemen traveling through Los Angeles.  The biggest names in Hollywood including Jack Benny, Alan Ladd, Ronald Reagan, Cary Grant, The Andrew Sisters, Bergen and McCarthy, Mel Blanc, Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Durante, Errol Fylnn, Judy Garland, Phil Harris and Alice Faye, Kay Kyser, Francis Langford, Groucho Marx, Dick Powell, Edward G. Robinson, Ginger Rogers, Roy Rogers, Dinah Shore, Red Skelton, Frank Sinatra, Barbara Stanwyck, Martha Tilton, Orson Welles, John Wayne, Rudy Vallee and many more all volunteered at the Hollywood Canteen.  Of her creation of the Hollywood Canteen, Bette Davis said, "There are few accomplishments in my life that I am sincerely proud of. The Hollywood Canteen is one of them."
