Joan Crawford and Bette Davis were two contemporary Hollywood Actresses. And as per the gossip of those times, they did not like each other. But their career paths crossed when they acted in the movie called, “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” (1962) The movie was a commercial and critical success.
Quite predictably, the movie makers desired to recreate the magic. So they announced one more movie with two stars, “What Ever Happened to Cousin Charlotte?” But after few days shooting, Crawford was replaced. The movie was completed, and renamed, “Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte.” (1964) This movie too was commercial and critical success.
The miniseries is one season and eight episodes. It covers the lives, times, controversies, gossip and feud between the two actresses leading upto the making up of 1962 movie, the 1964 movie, finally culminating with the death of Joan Crawford in 1977.
And two of our exceptional contemporary actresses play the yesteryear stars, Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford and Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis. The rest of the cast too, are pros of the first order.
