Bette Davis v. Joan Crawford

Bette Davis v. Joan Crawford

Two of the greatest actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, had an infamously frosty relationship. Not only were they professional rivals, but their private lives also clashed. Both women were under contract to Warner Bros. during the height of their fame in the 1940s. Both suffered from rocky marriages, tumultuous family relationships, and a desire to be known as the best. Recently their relationship has been examined in the FX mini-series Feud: Bette and Joan, which chronicles the time around the making of their 1962 classic cult film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
