The two Golden Age of Hollywood superstars Bette Davis and Joan Crawford had what could be described -in the nicest way possible-a contentious relationship.
Putting it more bluntly, they were bitter rivals who spent a lifetime going after and trying to one-up each other. Incredibly, they even managed to make one film together, the cult classic horror film Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? , made in the later parts of their respective careers, but even that didn’t bring them any closer.
When Joan Crawford died in 1977, Bette David had this to say about her passing:
You should never say bad things about the dead, only good . . . Joan Crawford is dead. Good.
