They didn't like each other much, they competed against each other for films. My understanding is that Joan was the problem, she resented Norma, right from the get go, and considering how Crawford later behaved, that fits. Crawford didn't seem to like anyone much except herself or anyone who could do something for her - in my opinion. Here's a quote of hers - "I resented the hell out of Norma Shearer; the only reason she got plum roles was becausee she married Irving Thalberg. I cried buckets when they gave her "Idiot's Delight.'" - Joan Crawford
have a read at some articles, you might find these interesting, that quote above is from the first article, but I do remember my dad talking about her - I grew up in an entertainment family and we got a lot of gossip at the dinner table.
