My Darling! During the screening she held privately for her friends, she apologized for "looking older than God's wet nurse" in the film she wore no makeup and dyed her hair grey, and the film used very claustrophobic close-ups to accentuate her age and frailty , she called the B-movie horror flick "a piece of shit", though her performance in it was praised by critics and remains popular as a cult film and with her fans.
Bankhead moved into East 62nd Street in the late s. On December 12, , Bankhead died in St. Luke's Hospital in Manhattan, aged The cause of death was pleural double pneumonia ,  complicated by emphysema due to cigarette smoking, malnutrition , and possibly a strain of the flu which was endemic at that time, her last coherent words reportedly were a garbled request for " Codeine A private funeral was held at St.
A memorial service was held at St. For her contribution to the motion picture industry, Bankhead has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at Hollywood Blvd. Bankhead was famous not only as an actress, but also for her many affairs, compelling personality, and witticisms such as, "There is less to this than meets the eye. Bankhead was an avid baseball fan whose favorite team was the New York Giants ;  this was evident in one of her famous quotes, through which she gave a nod to the arts: "There have been only two geniuses in the world, Willie Mays and Willie Shakespeare.
But, darling, I think you'd better put Shakespeare first. Like her family, Bankhead was a Democrat , but broke with many Southerners by campaigning for Harry Truman 's reelection in , she is credited with having helped Truman immeasurably by belittling his rival, New York's Governor Thomas E. While viewing the inauguration parade, she booed the South Carolina float which carried then-governor and segregationist Strom Thurmond , who recently ran against Truman on the Dixiecrat ticket, splitting the Democratic vote. The day her divorce became final, Bankhead told a reporter "You can definitely quote me as saying there will be no plans for a remarriage.
Bankhead had no children, but she had four abortions before she had a hysterectomy in , when she was 31,  she was the godmother of Brook and Brockman Seawell, children of her lifelong friend, actress Eugenia Rawls and Rawls' husband Donald Seawell. An interview that Bankhead gave to Motion Picture magazine in generated controversy. In the interview, Bankhead ranted wildly about the state of her life and her views on love, marriage, and children:. I'm serious about love. I'm damned serious about it now I haven't had an affair for six months.
Six months! Too long If there's anything the matter with me now, it's not Hollywood or Hollywood's state of mind Six months is a long, long while. Time ran a story about it, angering Bankhead's family. Bankhead immediately telegraphed her father, vowing never to speak with a magazine reporter again.
For these and other offhand remarks, Bankhead was cited in the Hays Committee 's "Doom Book", a list of actors and actresses considered "unsuitable for the public" which was presented to the studios. Bankhead was at the top of the list with the heading: "Verbal Moral Turpitude", she publicly called Hays "a little prick".
Following the release of the Kinsey reports , she was once quoted as stating, "I found no surprises in the Kinsey report; the good doctor's clinical notes were old hat to me I've had many momentary love affairs. A lot of these impromptu romances have been climaxed in a fashion not generally condoned. I go into them impulsively.
I scorn any notion of their permanence. I forget the fever associated with them when a new interest presents itself.
In , Bankhead nearly died following a five-hour emergency hysterectomy due to venereal disease. Bankhead locked herself in the bathroom and kept insisting, "That lesbian! I wouldn't know a thing about it. Bankhead never publicly described herself as being bisexual, she did, however, describe herself as "ambisextrous". Tallulah Bankhead is regarded as one of the great stage actresses of the 20th century,  acclaimed for her natural eloquence and dynamism, she excelled in both serious and comedic roles, and for over two decades, she was among the most celebrated actresses in Broadway or London's West End, praised in the superlative "perhaps the greatest actress this country has ever produced.
At the height of her career, she was a "living legend", Broadway's most original leading lady, her eccentric personality was an asset to her career rather than a hindrance, but as years of hard living took their toll, her highly publicized and often scandalous private life began to undermine her reputation of being a terrific actress. Her legend, which had once nourished her, nearly ruined her; the worst facets of her character were encouraged by her fans as virtues, and for the better part of her late career, she played to their caricature of herself.
However, the legend which had ruined her career made her an enormously popular icon in both the theatrical and particularly the gay community. Decades of sustained interest in Bankhead eventually realized itself in a renewed appreciation for her body of work. Bankhead was the first white woman to be featured on the cover of Ebony magazine, and was one of the very few actresses and the only stage actress to have a cover on both Time and Life. In , she was honored as one of the 10 most remarkable women in London.
A resolution honoring her achievements was passed in the Alabama Legislature.

Crothers later wrote the play Everyday for Bankhead, and Akins patterned the character of Eva Lovelace in her play Morning Glory on Bankhead, she became good friends with Tennessee Williams, who was immediately struck upon meeting her, describing her as "result[ing] from the fantastic crossbreeding of a moth and a tiger". Frank Dobson also sculpted a bust of Bankhead during her London period; the Library of Congress houses numerous works of Bankhead.
Bankhead left a lasting impact on American culture despite modern audiences being unfamiliar with the stage performances for which she was most acclaimed. Bankhead remains far more prominent in the public imagination than contemporary Broadway actresses of her caliber, and due to her unique personality and often self-destructive behavior. She has become a frequently imitated camp icon.
