Feud, Bette & Joan
Feuds are never about hate... Feuds are always about pain.
Fued, a TV series
(Aired on FX in 2017)
Centres on the famous feud between Joan Crawford & Bette Davis
Created by Ryan Murphy, Jaffe Cohen, and Michael Zam
Starring Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford and Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis
Im so excited to watch this show this weekend. The rivalry between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis crosses my love of classic hollywood with a good old fashioned bitch-fight! 1960’s Real Housewives drama.
Bette Davis & Joan Crawford had a very public rivalry and ended up filming the iconic “What ever happened to Baby Jane” right at the heart of it. They were two ageing stars – brilliant in their own way, and they knew they needed each other to make this film the success it was but it didnt stop them being outrageous and cutting to each other. I cannot wait to see how they adapt this story and excited for the costumes & cinematography alone! Not to mention the fact that Jessica Lange & Susan Sarandon play the title roles. Two fierce women, playing two fierce women.
Feud is created by American Horror Story’s Ryan Murphy which has me even more excited for it! The series will document famous feuds in history over each season. Season 2 has just been commissioned and it will focus on Princess Diana & Prince Charles. Looking forward to that too! I wonder who will portray them? Does anyone know?
Well, you know what i’ll be doing this weekend.. hope you all have a good one too!
*Update: So I watched the first episode last night! Omg, LOVED it. I cant get over how much Susan Sarandon actually does look like Bette Davis. I cant wait to watch the rest.. maybe I should have waited till it all came out and then binged on it… The week by week will kill me.
