FX has its mini-series about the Bette Davis-Joan Crawford "post-noir dustup" that informed so much of the subtext, foreground (and a more than occasional backhand, according to popular legend...) before, during and after the production of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? (1962).
Juicy stars in the leads (Susan Sarandon as Davis, Jessica Lange as Crawford) with Stanley Tucci doing his Jack Warner impression, and Alfred Molina as Robert Aldrich. Looks like it's worth a look...
