Trivia

The first season is a concoction of fiction and reality regarding the historical rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, using biographies, facts, rumors and tales over the years to construct its story line, but some true facts are misinformed:

1) In the the show, during a dinner, Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) says to Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) that she lost her virginity when she was 25. But in 1971, during The Dick Cavett Show (1968), real Bette alleged to have lost her virginity when she was 26 and married.

2) The show changes the date of journal advertisement in which Bette is seeking a job in Hollywood. It was actually published before production of "Baby Jane" starts, the advertisement was kind of a personal joke regarding the situation of aging actresses,.

3) In the Pilot, Robert Aldrich says to Jack L. Warner that he has written the script of "Baby Jane" himself, but in real life the screenplay was written by Lukas Heller. See more »

"Feud" becomes a tool
5 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

As someone who worked with actors all his life I'm enormously grateful to Ryan Murphy for putting together with such seriousness and such care this series about a subject that is very rarely if ever touched. And when it is, it tends to be a caricature, a satire, an exaggeration of an exaggeration. Here the drama was tangible and the work of Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon, superlative. They managed to transport us from the times of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, as women and actresses, to our times, without betraying it. The characters were one hundred per cent present and the actresses playing them were one hundred per cent present. If acting is an art, and it is, that mysterious fusion between actor and character is the manifestation of it. - Many young actors I'm working with at the moment, some of which had never heard of Steve McQueen, let alone Bette Davis or Joan Crawford, saw "Feud" and compelled and inspire them to want to know more. In the last few weeks I've had them come to me with stories of "All About Eve", "Humoresque", "The Little Foxes", William Wyler, George Cukor... So "Feud" has become a tool, an agent provocateur, a gateway to history, the history of their own profession. It's not wishful thinking on my part. I see it in the young one's faces. Discovering passionately, and their horizons broaden automatically. It's a joy to see. As I close this comment a heartfelt hurrah to Alfred Molina and Stanley Tucci for their fearless, remarkable performances and to everyone involved, thank you very much.
