Not the sort of Bette Davis TV show you'd expect.
24 May 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Bette Davis stars in this episode of "Telephone Time". She is a school teacher in a rural Minnesota school. However, a storm is brewing and she and five children are trapped inside the school. She tries to keep the kids' spirits up but she realizes that eventually she may have to take the kids on a trek through the woods to safety, as the power is out and the school is awfully cold. But considering it's a blizzard, this is a bit risky and there is a chance they could all become human popsicles.

This is a very unusual sort of TV show for Miss Davis. I am not saying she's bad in it...but it's also a job most folks could have done and doesn't exactly help her show off her magnificent acting skills. Still, it is entertaining and worth a look...and it's currently on YouTube if you want to give it a try.
