Not exactly photographic, more cinematic, but I was amused to read on Yahoo! some factoids about celebrity relationships on set. Nothing much has changed since the first days of the silver screen. There was a snippet about those Hollywood legends, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis who loathed each other.
While filming ‘What Happened to Baby Jane?’ (1962), Davis actually kicked Crawford in the scene when she pushed her down the stairs. In return, when Bette had to drag Joan off her bed, Joan put on a weighted diver’s belt underneath her costume, making her heavier to drag. Naturally, the duo also pitched in with some a-grade bitching.
Discussing Bette Davis’ hair, Joan Crawford said: “I don’t understand these Poodle cuts on elderly women”. Davis retorted by saying Crawford was “single handedly responsible for the syphilis outbreak in America.”
Meow. Makes most of the more recent prima donnas look like pussy cats. You have to feel sorry for the poor film directors.
