Facts about

During the filming of a Crawford scene on the veranda, Bette Davis positioned herself in front of the camera. Then during one of Joan's close-ups, Bette turned to the director, Robert Aldrich and said in a loud voice, "You're not going to let her do it like that, are you?" Crawford, trembling, finished the scene and returned to her dressing room.
When Joan Crawford traveled to Baton Rouge, for the location shooting, she brought along with her, her maid, hairdresser and makeup man. However, when they arrived at the airport, there was no one from the company to greet them. There had been a mistake in the schedule and everyone was filming at the mansion. Somehow, Crawford's arrival was not relayed to the proper driver.
Joan Crawford took sick and was hospitalized as filming began so scenes were shot around her, but when it became evident that she would have to be replaced, her role was offered to Katharine Hepburn and Vivien Leigh. Hepburn didn't return the studio's call, while Leigh declined, saying, "No, thank you. I can just about stand looking at Joan Crawford's face at six o'clock in the morning, but not Bette Davis."
