Had an infamously TroubledProduction due largely in part to the bitter rivalry between its two stars. This included Bette having Coke machines deliberately installed on set (Joan was on the board of directors for Pepsi), Joan wearing a weighted belt during a scene in which Bette had to drag her across the floor, in order to upset Bette's bad back (and then coughing several times so the scene had to be re-done), and Joan lobbying to the Academy of Arts and Sciences to not give Bette the AcademyAward for best actress for her role in the film, and then rubbing salting in the wound by offering to accept the award on behalf of any actress who couldn't make it to the ceremony should they win it. The show's production and the hatred the two shared for each other was the subject of the first season of {{Series/Feud}}.
