You Mean All This Time We Could Have Been Friends?

Drama series. Joan is advised against appearing in a low-budget British feature, but she needs the money.

In 1969, Joan is living in Manhattan and gets a call from her agent, who advises her against appearing in a low-budget British feature, provisionally called The Missing Link. But Joan needs the money, so she arrives in London to film the retitled Trog. In the meantime, Bette has kept working and according to her friend Victor Buono, snatched up everything and lost her high standards.

Both actresses reflect on what might have been.
