* TheRival: To Creator/BetteDavis. Many argue over what could've caused their hatred (one theory suggesting Joan and Bette were interested in the same man; said man ending up becoming one of Joan's husbands), which made ''What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?'' much more entertaining/realistic for many viewers. Despite this, Bette eventually pointed out that the two of them were NotSoDifferent, due to their backgrounds and similar career history.
-->'''Bette Davis:''' Joan Crawford ... I wouldn't piss on her if she was on fire.
** It surprised many people when Davis was one of the first Hollywood celebrities to deny the rumours of Crawford abusing her children.

* WhiteDwarfStarlet: As Crawford got older, she parlayed her talents into increasingly ridiculous productions in order to regain some measure of stardom. Notably, she starred in a production intended for her adopted daughter (who was a good thirty years younger than her) in a bid to get her name back in the spotlight.

** In ''Harriet Craig'' Harriet (Joan) gives a rant about how she was left poor and forced to drop out of a school and work in a laundry at the age of 14 when her father abandoned the family. This was more or less what happened in RealLife to Joan Crawford.
