Facts about

When Olivia de Havilland agreed to make the film, Robert Aldrich called Bette Davis to give her the good news. He also requested she keep the news a secret until he returned in two days, when he would legally inform Joan Crawford and her lawyer by letter. However, Bette didn't listen, she called her press agent Rupert Allen, who immediately leaked the story to the press.
Joan Crawford was seething when she read that Robert Aldrich had replaced her with Olivia de Havilland. She is quoted in "Hollywood Reporter" as saying, "Aldrich knew where to long distance me all over the world when he needed me, but he made no effort to reach me here that he had signed Olivia. He let me hear it for the first time in a radio release - and, frankly, I think it stinks."
The entire company was put up at the Belmont Motel (a mile outside Baton Rouge) and when Joan Crawford arrived at the the motel, her rooms had not been made up. She then had to sit for an hour in the motel's lobby and when she was finally put into a bungalow, it was next to the garbage disposal unit. That evening, when the company returned from filming, Joan complained to Bette Davis, "Oh, Joan. Pull yourself together. This is Baton Rouge, not Beverly Hills." Davis's bungalow was across Crawford's and was slightly larger and more luxurious.
