She's on the ANTA Album of Stars Volume 2, which was not released on 78s, and 
for some reason the artist index to the Decca Master Books doesn't list her at 
all (but there she is on volume 3 page 392).

Correction. She is listed. Under T (I kid you not).

There's also a nice scene from Private Lives with Donald Cook on a 16" transcription -- Treasury's Guest Star No. 29.  Both Bankhead and Cook were in a 1948 production of the show.
