There are parts of this that were taken from a documentary called STARDUST
My Aunt, Marion Richards, opens the video. She is my soul mate.
Marion lived with Bette and was the nursemaid to Bette's only natural child B.D.
William Grant Sherry, Bette's third husband was B.D.'s father.
Grant fell in love with Marion and eventually married her.

The life of Marion Richards is truly a movie within a movie and the stories are astounding.
Leaving home at the age of 12, venturing into the world like a feather falling into the sea, trusting in herself and in something greater than ‘she’.

Bette Davis adored Marion and had great respect for her.

The stories Marion has to share from the 'hey-day' of being one of Harpers Bizarres first models and the hollywood clique she was surrounded with are heart warming from her perspective. She was the girlfriend of Rory Calhoun who wanted to marry her and spent time on a yacht in Newport Harbour with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall (age 19 at the time and Marion was 16).

Marion could never fit in and went her own way and is still in contact with B.D. to this day.

Thank you to Katie Nairne for this beautiful compilation!

What an emotional and moving video passage of a life and personage who so many loved and still love. It was great learning about Marion's close relationship with Bette. Like the last comment said - 'We miss you Bette!'
