Thank the heavens for Feud, the new Ryan Murphy-directed FX series which stars Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange as famous actors-slash- nemeses, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. The stars' legendary mutual competition with and loathing for one other on the set of 1962's Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? has been a well-known Hollywood story for years, but Feud brings it to vivid life for a new audience, turning many of us on to the classic films of both actors for the first time. Fortunately, at least there are tons of ways to stream Bette Davis movies if you're obsessed with Feud, and get to know more about one-half of the actors featured in the series.
Now, a lot of classic Davis movies are harder to find than you might expect. They're not on Netflix or Hulu, unfortunately. You can, of course, always flip on Turner Classic Movies and you'll likely find a movie featuring the actor on any given day. TCM even has a streaming service called FilmStruck in collaboration with the Criterion Collection that will give you access to, I'm willing to bet, a great number of those iconic films that made Bette Davis a star. So, if you're a die-hard fan, my advice to you is definitely to check out FilmStruck. But for those of us with wonky browsers or a more entry-level approach to Davis, the list below offers some of her high-points and where to stream them.
