BETTE DAVIS & JOAN CRAWFORD were the 2 biggest screen stars, from 30's-60s. BETTE was Queen of Warner Bros. ( it took awhile but she got there) with 2 Oscars,( Dangerous, Jezebel)and 10 nominations. An actress! Joan was glamorous MGM star, starring often with Clark Gable, and made a strong impression in many films, such as The Women, etcA Star! Then when Joan switched studios to WB, The rivalry really began, Bette had turned down the role of Mildred Pierce, Crawford, grabbed it, and won her only Oscar, But the rivalry started earlier, when Bette stared with Joan's then husband, Franchot Tone in Dangerous, and allegedly had an affair. Their rivalry and careers, went up & down, until, 1962, when director BOB ALDRIDGE offered the 2 Mega stars to share roles in the Horror film, Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? a box office bonanza in 1962, This started an entire new career for both actresses.
