Just finished watching an eight part US tv drama called 'Fued' which is based on Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) when they co-starred in 'Whatever Happened To Baby Jane'. It starts prior to the filming and goes up to Joan's death. I was already aware they didn't like each other and of their history towards one another, but crikey "those two old broads" were venomous. It's hard to say which one shone out as the nicer of the two in this drama, although Joan was probably the most poisonous. 'Fued' is a proper old bitch fest of a drama and one well worth a watch, as is the film itself. Bette Davis when asked for a quote on Joan Crawford's death..."My mother always said never speak bad of the dead, only say good". Long pause. "Good".
