Bette Davis and James Bacon are seen on a movie set in the 1950s. "It was so much easier back in the '50s, the end of the golden era," Bacon told The Times in 1991. "Stars loved the press and the press loved stars. You'd go out to the studio and sit down with [Clark] Gable and [Spencer] Tracy and people like that, you'd have a column in a minute. You didn't have to deal that much with press agents."
