Facts about

When Joan Crawford was in Baton Rouge and she came to film Miriam's arrival, there was no dialogue involved. Joan was to arrive at the mansion in a cab, exit, carrying a small case, pay the driver, and lowering her sunglasses, look up at the balcony of the house where Bette, in pigtails and a nightgown, was standing in the shadows, holding a shot gun. The scene was designed to be photographed in a wide continuous shot, and, thanks to Crawford's proficient technical skill, it was completed in one take. Later that evening, when publicist Harry Mines called on Bette in her motel bungalow, he found her standing in the middle of the room practicing Joan's scene. "My God!" said Bette. "I've been here all evening long with a pair of dark glasses and some luggage and I'm imagining getting out of a cab and trying to do that whole business in one gesture. How did she do it?"
Robert Aldrich had to take three planes, a train, and a taxi up a goat trail to get to Olivia de Havilland's home, which was in the Swiss Mountains. There, it took him four days to convince her to step in and replace Joan Crawford.
The painting of young Charlotte is of Bette Davis in her role as Julie in Jezebel.
