TV Review: ‘Feud’

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Feud,” which tells the story of clashing screen titans Joan Crawford and Bette Davis around the production of their 1962 film “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,” is a series designed for a knowing audience, a basket of Easter eggs. The mythos of the film’s production — which cast the two rivals as two sisters raised in show business — is intertwined with each actress’ place in Hollywood legend; it was a last-ditch attempt at relevance for both “mature” stars, in an industry that would have preferred to shove them aside for younger women. As “Feud” relates, even though Crawford brought the project to Davis and profited off of its success, she couldn’t stomach the fact that Davis was nominated for an Academy Award over her. Stoked by alcohol and anger, Crawford went so far as to actively campaign against her costar in the 1963 Oscar race — before mutual desperation brought the two actresses together again for “HushHush »

Feud: Bette And Joan Review

22 February 2017 6:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

“Feuds are never about hate,” famed screen legend Olivia de Havilland (Catherine Zeta-Jones) explains to a documentary film director in the opening minutes of what’s likely to be your simmering new obsession: Feud. “They’re about pain.” Anthology fetishist Ryan Murphy understands that pathos to a disturbingly detailed degree, and in tracking the blistering “friendship” between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, he ends up with one of his best cracks at the anthology genre in years.

The show’s premise risks stepping into the catty trap of comebacks and catfights at first blush, but Murphy and company have no desire to reduce Bette and Joan’s discourse into a frivolous fiasco. Feud is deliberate and cunning, with as much guile and guts as the two women at its center. Its drama is a slower-burn than Murphy’s typical chomping-at-the-bit style, »

‘Feud’: Inside Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon’s Take on a Hollywood Battle Royale

15 February 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dressed in a black ensemble topped by a long brown coat, Ryan Murphy darts back and forth between two rooms in the chilly Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. On this January day, a cramped space in this deliciously retro complex houses the monitors for Murphy as he directs an episode of his new FX series “Feud: Bette and Joan” that is set at the 1963 Academy Awards.

It’s a pivotal moment in the famous rivalry between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Having co-starred in “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” both women wanted the career boost of appearing on the Oscar podium. While it’s tough to spoil an event that happened more than five decades ago, let’s just say it was, to quote Davis, a “bumpy night.”

Feud” — which debuts March 5 — mines that decades-old conflict to tell a modern and highly relevant story about Hollywood, sexism, and survival.

Ryan Murphy, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon Talk Hollywood Ageism, Sexism and Inspirations for ‘Feud’

14 February 2017 3:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As a kid growing up in Indiana in the 1970s, Ryan Murphy only ever penned two fan letters.

One was to actor Ron Palillo, better known as Horshack from “Welcome Back, Kotter.” He never wrote back. The other was to Bette Davis. She did write back.

The legendary actress’ response wasn’t gushy, which made it feel all the more authentic. “She didn’t write ‘Love, Bette Davis, Xoxoxo.’ It was like ‘Thanks for the letter. You’re sweet. Bette Davis,” Murphy recalled Tuesday during a luncheon panel session devoted to his latest FX series, “Feud,” which bows March 5.

Murphy’s first letter to Davis led to a running correspondence which eventually led to a meeting in Los Angeles about a month before the screen legend died in 1989. Nearly 30 years later, the prolific writer-director-producer is at the helm of the limited series that tells the story of Davis and Joan Crawford’s frenemy relationship during the making »

If you created a TV show in a laboratory with the specific aim of winning a Best Actress Emmy… it’d probably look a lot like FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan. For better or worse.

The first season of Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series (debuting Sunday, March 5 at 10/9c) is an actor’s dream, letting Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon rip each other to shreds and chew up every bit of scenery as dueling Hollywood divas Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Review: Why Care About the Facts When a Show Feels This True?

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” is a TV show built on pure gossipy indulgence; one that’s inclined to believe the most juicy stories about its characters, but not in a bad way. Historical reports about the truth of what happened on the set of “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and surrounding events are up for dispute, so instead we have the popular myths surrounding Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s legendary — and last — on-screen collaboration put on display by Ryan Murphy and his team. The end result is at times simultaneously obvious, essential, and not nearly as campy as you might expect.

And it turns out, that’s for the best.

In the brief clip, the 47-year-old actress pans her camera around different sections of her color-coordinated closet, which features shelves designated for her colossal stiletto collection, designer handbags and vibrant scarves.

"A zip through my closet!" she captioned it. "#StyleByZeta."

She also recently shared a photo of her black-and-gold lace-up booties, which she paired with a classic Chanel bag. "Feet up," she wrote. "Ready to fly."

And can we talk about these neon pink pumps?

So fab!
