Description by OLDIES.com:

In a career that has spanned five decades, Bette has never failed to amuse, delight, provoke, inspire and entertain.

The Divine Bette Midler offers an extraordinary and intimate look at Bette's amazing creative and personal journey. From her beginnings in the unlikely setting of Honolulu - where she vowed to become a legend - to her Broadway debut in the chorus of "Fiddler On The Roof" and her sold-out concerts and hit movies, her intense drive, ambition and talent were always apparent and enabled her to emerge as a superstar on record, television, film and the concert stage.

This remarkable DVD includes interviews with Bette's friends, like Barry Manilow, Danny DeVito and Bruce Vilanch, as well as an exclusive interview with Bette and many rare gems from throughout her remarkable career, such as early TV appearances, scenes from her movie blockbusters and several song performances, including special moments from her hugely successful Kiss My Brass tour!

Product Description:

Irrepressible singer, actress, comedian, and all-around star Bette Midler has conquered the worlds of stage, screen, song, and television with her big, brassy voice and larger-than-life personality. Hailing from Honolulu, Hawaii, the diva got her start singing at a gay bathhouse in New York City, where she was accompanied on piano by nascent singer/songwriter Barry Manilow (who also produced her first album). Making her Broadway debut in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, Midler went on to wow audiences with her dramatic starring turn as a drug-addicted singer in the widely acclaimed feature film THE ROSE, which launched a successful acting career that included roles in DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS, RUTHLESS PEOPLE, and, of course, BEACHES, as well as a television production of GYPSY and her own sitcom BETTE. This documentary presents an intimate portrait of Bette Midler's long and varied showbiz career through a collection of film clips; television appearances; live performances (including footage from her KISS MY BRASS tour); reminiscences from friends and colleagues Manilow, Danny DeVito, and Bruce Villanch; and an exclusive interview with the Divine Miss M herself.
