    Joan of course! She had so many talents beside acting.She was intregal in the creation of It’s a Small World ride at Disney among other little known facts.

    Oh, gee! I wish I were funny. Bette was definitely more devious and self-centered in her roles, but Joan was unbelievable in the Twilight Zone episode where she too someone’s eyeballs to restore her own vision! Plus, she swam a mile everyday and rarely wore a bra! I always had the feeling Joan was just wee bit badder in real life, so my vote is for Joan

  3. Tracey says:

    Bette had amazing resting bitch face long before it became an internet meme and her shade skills were better than Ray-Ban. So I’ll go with Bette!

    Joan, hands down. She was legendary for adoring her fans…Bette…no. Joan could sell a product better than anyone (Pepsi), and had the greatest board meeting line ever. ..”Don’t f#@$ with me, fellas!”

    I am going to have to buck the trend here & say Bette.
    Both unique & powerful women, sacred monsters, mighty egos, forces of nature.

    I deeply enjoy the huge contribution that Joan has made to camp with her joyously untrammeled BIG acting style, agrressive eyebrows swooping across her brow like the spread wings of a vulture coming in to rend raw meat; matchy matchy mummy daughter outfits, kitschy decor, snotty pretentiousness, keane painting collection, sugary sentimentality & brutal will, amazing book “My Way of Life” & so much more.

    Bette for me though – a unique & stunning beauty with greater personal integrity, self knowledge & humour (relative to la Crawford at any rate).
    The greater artist & the better person.

      I need to read the auto-biographies of both these broads.

      • Monski says:

        If you have not read it “My Way of Life” is the pinnacle of kitsch – Joan’s self penned lifestyle book. How to decorate, entertain, pack (with the assistance of Mamacita), your trunks for a Royal Crown Cola promotional trip etc… etc…
        It is a complete & total hoot!

    Joan. Joan was a right-wing shill for Pepsi-Cola and everyone knows Hollywood is supposed to be a hotbed of pinko liberalism — therefore, she had the guts to buck the system. Also, when she was dying, her maid started praying, and Joan’s response was to tell her “Damn it ….Don’t you dare ask God to help me.”

    Thus, Joan was the most bad-ass star until Chuck Norris.

  7. M. G. says:

    Bette. Seriously it’s due to her performance in All About Eve. Great Movie.

    Why do they have mustaches on their foreheads?
