At the Crux of Feud Is the Necessary Collaboration of Bette Davis & Joan Crawford to Take Down the Filmic Patriarchy

Feud‘s debut has not only sparked delight over another American Horror-esque format for creator Ryan Murphy (the series will next focus on the contentious relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana), but also over the incredible attention to detail with which the script is written.
