"Bette and Joan" in London

We are back in 1962 on the set of Robert Aldrich's new film WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? where Bette Davis and Joan Crawford sink their differences and work on this low-budget movie which they hope will get them back on top .... Their legendary feud is now the subject of a new play just opening in London, titled - yes - BETTE AND JOAN, we will have to see if it is worth checking out. It's presumably based on that deliciously trashy read "Bette and Joan: The Divine Feud" ... it must be daunting stepping into such well known shoes!

Greta Scacchi and Anita Dobson (Angie from hit tv show EASTENDERS) play the ageing stars and should at least have the look right. They were on television yesterday discussing it and seem to be having a lot of fun with it. Below: Greta lets rip as Bette as Baby Jane - and the real thing!
