Mary Astor isn't that 'remembered' today. Most of the people who know who she was, how she sounded and acted, know her for one role only - Brigid O’Shaughnessy in The Maltese Falcon, opposite Humphrey Bogart. She won an Academy award for best supporting actress in 1941, was really big in the early 1930s, but she just didn't make the kind of quality films like Bette Davis to be well remembered today.
Every so often an exceptionally capable woman has to prove her worth by competing
against a clown. That’s one of the durable truisms of “Battle of the Sexes,” a glib,
enjoyable fictionalization of the 1973 exhibition tennis match between Billie Jean
King and Bobby Riggs.
