‘Feud’ Title Sequence: How Ryan Murphy Will Intro the Crawford-Davis Rivalry (Video)

Series starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as Joan Crawford and Bette Davis debuts March 5

FX has released an appropriately cartoony title sequence for Ryan Murphy’s “Feud: Bette and Joan,” his look at one of Hollywood’s most animated rivalries.

The beautifully illustrated sequence mixes references to the lives of Joan Crawford and Bette Davis with scenes from “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,” the film in which they co-starred.

There’s also an image of the Crawford and Davis being manipulated like puppets by a faceless man in a suit, hinting at how the two women were pitted against one another for awards and publicity.

The first season of the FX anthology series debuts on March 5, with Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange starring as Davis and Crawford, respectively.

The A-list cast also includes Alfred Molina as the “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” director Robert Aldrich, Stanley Tucci as studio titan Jack Warner, Judy Davis as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, Jackie Hoffman as Crawford’s housekeeper Mamacita, and Alison Wright as Aldrich’s assistant Pauline.

Dominic Burgess, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and Kiernan Shipka guest star throughout the season.

Murphy serves as executive producer alongside Tim Minear, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Dede Gardner and Brad Pitt of Plan B Entertainment.
