If you've been savoring the delicious FX series Feud: Bette and Joan, by television camp master Ryan Murphy, this is your friendly reminder that this Wednesday, TCM will be showing the 1962 film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

The legendary film reinvigorated the careers of Bette Davis (played by Susan Sarandon in the FX show) and Joan Crawford (played with eerie accuracy by Susan Sarandon). The filming of this classic was also ground zero for one of the greatest Hollywood feuds of all time.

As our reviewers here on the Feed noted, you can't help but take sides while watching these two iconic women manipulate each other. Having loved this series so far, it occurred to me that I can't recall watching this film from start to finish so I called up my beloved Tivo search and was delighted to discover TCM plans two showings of the film in the next few weeks: One is on Wednesday March 22 at 1:45 p.m. and also April 18 at 3:30 p.m.
