A mural we pass relatively constantly on Fountain by Panhandle Slim.
As Wikipedia puts it, on their entry for the 2005 album by UK band, The Wedding Present, named Take Fountain:
“In Los Angeles, Fountain Avenue is a minor east-west street, between and parallel to Sunset Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard, two very congested arteries. Therefore, when Johnny Carson asked Bette Davis for advice on ‘the best way an aspiring starlet could get into Hollywood,’ Ms. Davis replied without hesitation, ‘Take Fountain!'”
This ain’t that clip—it’s one from 1988, the year before Ms. Davis died—but it’s a classic nonetheless, especially all the shade-throwing at Faye Dunaway.
