Star Wars

I thought it would be fun to mention the famous, bitter feud that was between two Hollywood titans, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Joan is also my Glamour Girl pick of the week! There are many theories as to what caused this rivalry. One is that Bette Davis was jealous of the glamorous Crawford, as Bette herself was considered an actress but not a “movie star” as Joan was. Another reason is that Bette Davis was madly in love with Franchot Tone and Joan Crawford took him away from her (married him to be precise). I highly recommend you watch the movie “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane”, in which they both starred in. There are a lot of funny stories about the antics these two did in order to sabotage each other on set.

I included some very funny quotes from Bette Davis about Joan Crawford.

“Why am I so good at playing bitches? I think it’s because I’m not a bitch. Maybe that’s why [Joan Crawford] always plays ladies.”

“She has slept with every male star at MGM except Lassie.”

“I wouldn’t piss on her if she was on fire.”

[commenting on the death of Joan Crawford] “You should never say bad things about the dead, you should only say good . . . Joan Crawford is dead. Good.”
