Episode Quotes

Bette Davis: The truth is, I only really knew I'd made it once the female impersonators started doing me in their acts.
Victor Buono: Well, that guarantees you're leaving behind a real legacy.
Bette Davis: Ah, the only real legacy is children.
Joan Crawford: And it was Gloria Swanson who was robbed in 1950, not you, bitch!


  • Goof (factual errors): While talking with Joan Crawford about her first sexual experience. Betty Davis states "I didn't even get a tingle until I was 25. And I waited another two years before I did the deed. And that was on my God damn honeymoon". The real Betty Davis was born in April 1908. And she married for the first time on August 18, 1932. So she was 24 when she went on her real honeymoon. Not the 27 that Susan Sarandon's Betty Davis claims.
  • Goof (anachronisms): While Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and her daughter B.D. (Kieran Shipka) are running lines, the soundtrack from "Charade" is playing in the background. "Charade" wasn't released until late 1963, slightly more than a year after "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"
  • Goof (factual errors): It is stated by Joan that she's been working on the film for 6 weeks. The film was actually shot in less than a month.
