In a 1978 interview with People, when Joan was asked about the Black Cat Bat Nevermind The Witch Beware Of The Cat Pumpkin Halloween Shirt Besides,I will do this estrangement, she said, “You can divorce your sister as well as your husbands. I don’t see her at all and I don’t intend to.” She added, “I got married first, got an Academy Award first, had a child first. If I die, she’ll be furious, because again I’ll have got there first.” (Indeed, Joan did go first, dying in 2013 at the age of 96.)
Ironically, in 2017, de Havilland sued Ryan Murphy over another famous Hollywood rivalry, that of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, in his FX series Feud: Bette and Joan. De Havilland claimed in her suit that in a subplot, her character, played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, was portrayed as a petty gossip, spreading tales about Davis and Crawford and suggesting that Frank Sinatra was a drunk. De Havilland claimed she never said any of the Black Cat Bat Nevermind The Witch Beware Of The Cat Pumpkin Halloween Shirt Besides,I will do this dialogue attributed to her and that the series damaged her “professional reputation for integrity, honesty, generosity, self-sacrifice and dignity.” The legal action eventually went to the Supreme Court before it was dismissed.
