Bette Midler Turns 72 — I’d Say Happy B’day, but Why Botha?

Bette Midler turned 72 today, tweeting that she has "cake face" this evening.

She's entitled!

Midler is famous for so many things — the baths, The Rose (1979), Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986), Beaches (1988) and "The Wind Beneath My Wings" (1988), Hocus Pocus (1993), her tours, her Twitter, her current run in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway.

But for me, one of my favorite things she's ever done is Angst on a Shoestring (1985), a short comic film she made for David Letterman's (b. 1947) Holiday Film Festival. She actually taped his show the night of her 40th birthday!
