Did You Know?


According to director Walter Hill, Robert Aldrich's daughter was displeased with her father's portrayal in the series. For example, in real-life he had developed What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) before offering Joan Crawford a chance to star, rather than the other way around as dramatized in the show. See more »

Jane and Banche in the real world.
10 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Why was I thinking that it couldn't work? Maybe because it never does. But "Bette and Joan" present us with that always welcome exception. The introduction of this two icons has sharpness and shine. Both walking a very tight rope. Joan with desperation, Bette with defiance. It is a terrific treat to see Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon going for the real centers rather than the caricature. Alfred Molina is priceless as Robert Aldrich and Stanley Tucci reinvents Jack Warner to a delightful perfection. The late entrance of Joan/Jessica at the theater where Bette/Susan is playing in The Night Of The Iguana is one of my favorite film moments of the young 2017 season. Now, needles to say, I can't wait for the next chapter.
