I'm with you. I'm really enjoying ''Feud'' and its fierce performances, production design, the biting and bitter wit, etc.

So we got a glimpse of Davis doing ''A Night of the Iguana,'' but does anyone know why Crawford never returned to Broadway?

Ibdb.com lists Crawford's 2 Broadway credits as musical revues from 1924, when she was billed as ''Lucille Le Sueur.''

(And while I know Judy Davis, who's brilliant as Hedda Hopper, has done stage classics in Australia, what a shame she's never been on Broadway.)

P.S. The opening title sequence, designed by Kyle Cooper (and inspired by Saul Bass and Paul Rand), deserves an Emmy alone.

Its use of cutout figures, bold colors and Mac Quayle's brooding music (reminiscent of Bernard Herrmann) are genius.
