Feud (2017) First look at Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford

Recommended Posts

First review of the television series event of the season:

 

http://ew.com/tv/2017/02/14/feud-ew-review/

I've been on the fence about this since I find Ryan Murphy's projects wildly uneven and sometimes worth watching, sometimes not; but having read this mostly positive review and watching the first preview, I'm really looking forward to it!  I can't help wonder aloud whether successful if -- not unlike his AHS series -- he'll continue with more embattled adversaries; I for one would like to see a project in a similar vein about long-feuding sisters Joan Fontaine and Olivia DeHavilland.  :peachonthebeach:

Here's a great Q&A with Bette I'd never heard before. Enjoy Ms. Davis sharing her views on Joan Crawford (her public view, anyway), Ronald Reagan, being a bitch, favorite leading men and theatrical nudity.

 

 

Just got around to watching this. I love how professional Bette was. Nowadays she'd be getting into a Twitter war with Joan.

She always sounded very diplomatic and (fairly) kind about Reagan even though it was clear their politics didn't match. I wonder if she'd behave the same way were she able to witness our current situation. Diplomacy or not- Donny is no Ronny!

Bette and Joan in a Twitter war, now there's something that'd be fun to see.

From the set of Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, 1964:

 

@MissBetteDavis: "@JCOfficial has been taking a "bathroom break" in her trailer going on 3 hours now- What a dump!"

 

@JCOfficial: "A certain costar of mine has reported to TMZ that I have been drunk on the set of HHSH. Complete and utter fake news. I have not been intoxicated in any form."

 

@MissBetteDavis: "BUT Y'ARE @JCOfficial!!! Y'ARE DRUNK!!!"

 

@JCOfficial: "I don't know if @MissBetteDavis thinks she's being funny by constantly leaving wire hangers in my trailer, but it's just petty and cruel."

 

@MissBetteDavis: "Somebody's got a Pepsi bottle stuck up her ass today! #bitchstolemyoscar"

LMAO! These are terrific! Love the #bitchstolemyoscar

 

@JCOfficial: @MissBetteDavis can outbitch @LUCYBall any day of the week!

 

@MissBetteDavis: I was lucky I broke my leg and couldn't do her show. Poor @TallulahDAHLING deserves martyrdom for that one.

 

@TallulahDAHLING: Oh @MissBetteDavis, you are sweet. There's nothing I couldn't say to your face...both of them.

I adored it. Of course, there were many artistic liberties but it was very well done, the writing was fantastic and our leading ladies did a wondaful job.
