JOIN 2 tables and pull information from each

I have two tables, one table (article_cat) has four fields ("id", "title", "feature1", and "feature2") and the other table has six fields (articles) has ("id", "cat_id", "title", "content", "feature1", and "feature2"). I am looking to display the "title" from the "article_cat" table that has "feature1" with a value of 1. And I want to display beneath that all the "title" results from the "articles" table where "feature1" has a value of 1. I have tried this a thousand ways with no luck. Here is a representation of what I want:

TITLE (article_cat)
title (articles)
title (articles)
title (articles)

I was hoping someone can show me the err of my ways. Thanks so much in advance to all those who help! Here is the flawed code I have thus far:

$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM articles, article_cat WHERE articles.feature1 = 1 AND article_cat.feature1 = 1 ORDER BY id ASC");
if($numrows != 0) {
while ($result = mysql_fetch_array($query)) {
<td align="left" valign="top">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<td align="left" valign="top"><strong><? echo $result['article_cat.title']; ?>:</strong><br>
<strong>></strong><a href="article_details.php?id=<? echo $result['id']; ?>"><? echo $result['articles.title']; ?></a><br>
<? } } ?>
