Storyline

In two separate interviews in the late 1970s, Olivia de Havilland and Joan Blondell, in part, place the filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) and the difficult relationship between its two stars, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, before, during and after filming into some context. Joan and Bette are known as two of the most powerful actresses of their time. Bette in particular is known for her fearlessness on screen, while Joan was more protective of the image she projected both in her acting and personal life. It's 1961. Past middle age which is a difficult age for actresses to get substantial leading roles, both Joan and Bette are past what would be considered their acting prime, with Marilyn Monroe the Hollywood "it" girl of the day. Joan's latest husband, Pepsi executive Alfred Steele, has just passed away. Although Pepsi no longer pays Joan, she is still flogging the brand to appear relevant.

This first episode was our introduction to the characters and I felt it was great giving us the opportunity to have a great behind the scenes look and choose our side.

Lange's Joan Crawford seems tough but also had a hard period recently and I felt sorry Bette Davis did not answer her congratulations card.It is good to see the little sensitivity behind a real life viper,who really seemed to push it hard at times and she always looked for an excuse to make her producer's life harder.She dominates almost every scene she is in,because of her acting experience and her character's power.

Susan's Bette Davis in my opinion,is perfectly done if we overlook the voice,she knows her age is over yet it still strives to bring something new to raise her kids and have a modest yet accomplished life.

The other characters we were introduced to,who give interviews and opinions on the legendary rivalry have themselves taken side,a thing most likely expected of us,the audience.

The best part is yet to come.
