Bette Davis as Empress Carlota of Mexico

Bette Davis as Empress Carlota of Mexico in the film "Juarez". In this scene, the tragic empress was secretly visiting a shrine to pray for the help of Our Lady of Guadalupe in having a child, both for herself and so that there would be an heir to the crown of Mexico. It was a very touching scene, very beautifully shot and very well acted. Davis was a pro.

  1. Favourite quote from the movie, by Claude Rains:
    "Let the world know that our conquest of México is only the beginning of the fulfilment of our holy mission"
