I was away so I just watched the last "Feud" and was previously wondering where the quote "I'd rather spit blood in the sink than look like Martha Raye" came from (and why those were someone's 2 alternatives).

 

Again, the recreations!  That split-second shot from "The Decorator" where Bette/Liz comes in with sunglasses and that bat-winged caftan:  it's spot-on.

 

I'm sure "The Decorator" pilot is up on youtube.  I cannot understand why this one wasn't picked up.  It's actually funny and for 1965, that's saying something.  Plus the other cast regular was Mary Wickes.  I think there were reasons other than the quality of the show for it not becoming a series. 

 

Or for that matter, all the other Bette Davis pilots the networks turned down.  Until "Hotel" but then she got sick and had to bow out.

The finale made mention of Bette doing 8 pilots, none of which went to series.

While you could read Joan's book where she admits to sooooooiling herself, it may also be worth your time to check out the upcoming release from Bette's late-life companion, Kathryn Sermak!

Prior to Baby Jane, she and Gary Merrill did a pilot called The Starmaker and Bette did a backdoor pilot on Wagon Train. In the '60s and '70s, she also did Madam Sin with Robert Wagner, the sitcom Hello, Mother, Goodbye!, and The Judge and Jake Wyler (depicted on Feud). I'm not sure what the others were.

I seem to very vaguely recall reading about (maybe even SEEING? Probably not) Hello, Mother, Goodbye! And I didn't know M. Sin was a pilot.
I think it was Will McKinley who said it's ironic how revered these old Hollywood stars are nowadays, when in the 70s all they could get were crummy movies of the week and guest spots on Love Boat.

I would love if a station like GET would broadcast a good copy of Joan Crawford on The Tim Conway Show. In the grainy copy that was on YouTube once upon a time, she actually had some comedy chops. lol

This would be his variety show, I take it? I can't remember much about it... was it on ABC?

This impressive video features side-by-side comparisons for every re-created scene in the show. It just goes to show the lengths the creative team went to and their incredible attention to detail.

I don't think this was recorded for official release, as Brock told me earlier it was a demo.
