What A Dump! Bette Davis as "The Decorator"

My friend Michael J Lee, a fantastic photographer, sent over the link to this hysterical 1965 television pilot of Bette Davis as "The Decorator". This was an early Aaron Spelling (Dynasty!) project. Too funny! Sitcom veteran Mary Wickes plays the long suffering, wise cracking, assistant.

Best line: "Don't be absurd! Everyone needs a decorator!" [cue opening credits!]

"I don't care if it is your house! It will have a moat if I want it to have a moat!"

I love it! I had never heard of this before. I wish it had made it to air. Who wouldn't love to see Bette Davis in a sitcom with Mary Wickes?! Brilliant.
