Bette & Joan says
Bette Davis (1908-1989) and Joan Crawford (1904-1977) were two of classic Hollywood’s most famous and respected leading ladies. Crawford got her start in the silents, first appearing in minor roles in lavish MGM productions, then transitioning to the gritty Warner Bros. films which earned her fame. While Crawford’s performances often appeared over-the-top, she was always psychologically committed to her roles, which grew darker, more villainous and indelible as her career progressed. Davis, on the other hand, worked at Warner for nearly her entire career, establishing herself as Hollywood’s top star and a model for the strong, modern woman. The two stars famously carried on a bitter feud throughout their careers, which became fodder for unending gossip and legendary Hollywood lore. But despite their deep personal animosity, the rivalry pushed each to excel, and between them they achieved some of the highest highs in some of the most memorable roles that we have had the good fortune to enjoy.
