A couple from Canada have purchased what is known as the "Bette Davis Estate" in Palm Springs for $5 million, about the asking price when the property was listed in June 2007. The actress died in 1989 and, despite popular lore that she owned the compound, actually just leased its guesthouse in the '50s and '60s. That's how the estate, built in the '30s, got its name. The five-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot home is on slightly more than an acre with an orchard, a pool, tennis court, gym, spa and sauna.
