Feud brings one of the most notorious Hollywood gossips back to life.

Spencer Tracy once confronted Hopper at Ciro’s and kicked her in the behind for printing a "blind item" on his affair with Katharine Hepburn. ZaSu Pitts compared her to a ferret and Joan Bennett actually had a live skunk delivered to her. The Sweet Smell of Success’ J.J. Hunsucker is said to be partially based on her. If you were a star from 1940-1965, there was no escaping her clutches.
