About the Costume

Its appearance serves to symbolize Bette Davis’ character Leslie Crosbie’s habit of weaving a web of lies while feigning innocence.

Costume Commentary

  1. So I said she was making the shawl in the film but it seems I was mistaken. She does make shawls throughout it but not the shawl seen here. It does still symbolize her deceitfulness though. Sorry about that!
