A Graphic Introduction
March 18, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
The new FX series Feud: Bette and Joan is a throwback to old Hollywood and the tale of the bitter rivalry between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis during the filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962). The clip, inspired by the simple cut-out figures and titles by Saul Bass during the same decade (Anatomy of a Murder, Vertigo and many others you’ll remember) does its job well, setting up the conflict of the main characters and the historical mood of the times. (For a look back at TVWW’s views on main titles, see the season one versions of Vikings here, and Homeland, here.–Eric Gould
