Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland in Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte (Dir. Robert Aldrich, Cinematography. Joseph F. Biroc, 1964)

“Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte was full of traps, it was a delicate tight-rope walking assignment. I found that very interesting. Aldrich gave it a very special style, a kind of dark glittering style which fascinated me.” - Olivia de Havilland

Batman’s observation of Superman (Superman on Batman x)

“If Clark wanted to, he could use his superspeed and squish me into the cement. But I know how he thinks. Even more than the Kryptonite, he’s got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark’s essentially a good person… and deep down, I’m not. - Batman: Hush (2003)

 Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? was such a smash success, studio executives suddenly were eager to cast the two in a second film. Director Robert Aldrich cast the two in his next film, Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte. Unfortunately after only a short while of filming, Joan Crawford became ill and could not complete the film. In need of a new leading lady fast the studio contacted both Katharine Hepburn and Vivien Leigh. Hepburn did not respond to the studio, while, Leigh reportedly responded, “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.” The role ultimately went to Davis’ friend, Olivia de Havilland.
