Hollywood star Bette Davis is featured on a new US postage stamp commemorating the 100th anniversary of her birth. The 42-cent stamp features a portrait of the actress as she appeared in the 1950 film All About Eve. According to her son Michael Merrill, the Oscar-winning icon - who died in 1989 at the age of 81 - would have been "tremendously thrilled" by the honour. Born Ruth Elizabeth Davis, her many films include The Letter, Dark Victory, The Little Foxes and Now, Voyager.  Davis was Oscar-nominated for all those films, with further best actress citations coming for All About Eve, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, The Star and Mr Skeffington. Her name was also added to the ballot in 1935 for her breakthrough performance in On Human Bondage. The actress won two best actress Oscars from her 11 nominations - for Dangerous in 1936 and Jezebel in 1939. Davis, who was married four times and had three children, chose "She did it the hard way" for an epitaph. "It isn't that she was complaining but that she had persevered," Merrill told the Associated Press.
