Who sang the song for the movie? It sounds like Annette Funicello.
The article says that "Uncredited in the final scenes of this picture is a young Morgan Freeman. He appears as a vendor at a seaside cafe and gives Betty Davis two ice cream cones that she walks away with and does not pay for." This doesn't seem possible, since Freeman would have been in his mid twenties at the time of the film. The vendor in question looks to be in his forties. I remember Freeman from the Electric Company re-runs during the early 80s---even then, he looked younger than the vendor in question at the time of them film. Kemet 10:41, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
I agree I don't think it is Morgan. On imdb the ice cream vendor is listed as Ernest Anderson not Morgan Freeman...so I believe this to be a mistake here on wiki —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:23, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
- It wasn't Freeman. It was Ernest Anderson, who had appeared with Bette Davis in In This Our Life (1942). See http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000010/nest/114160100?p=1 and http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0026695/. I've deleted the vandalism. Softlavender (talk) 10:32, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Ernie Anderson is white. There were TWO ice cream vendors, a white man and a young black man. The age, face and voice of the young black man are undoubtedly that of Morgan Freeman who was uncredited. Aemtjim (talk) 04:45, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
- The would be the Ernest Anderson who is considered the first real African American actor, right? The one whose most famous film was censored for representing racial discrimination in 1942? Yes, that guy was totally white, man. complainer (talk) 09:06, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
Photos of Ernie Anderson confirm that he, not Morgan Freeman, is the ice cream vendor.

More could be added
More could be added. At the end the women looked younger. Crawford kept drinking so she sweated in the sun and needed to go trailer often and put on makeup. Davis, not wanting to be outdone, did the same but said she could will herself to be younger, and said Crawford added falsies to look better when lying on the beach. The filming of the two in that final scene was mismatched enough that it had to be done again.
Davis did not like Buono initially, thinking him a big oaf. Later she realized he was an excellent actor and she apologized to him.
- Huge chunks of this article, e.g. detailing how the two main actresses constantly tried, usually with some success, to hurt each other, have been removed from this article, probably for douchebaggish reasons. I got tired of looking for them after browsing through some 300 revisions, however. complainer (talk) 01:19, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
