Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
DIRECTOR: ROBERT ALDRICH
CAST: BETTE DAVIS, JOAN CRAWFORD
A poison-pen letter to Tinseltown that makes Sunset Boulevard look like a love note, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? locks viewers into the decrepit Hancock Park mansion with the Hudson sisters, former child actress Jane (Bette Davis) and her wheelchair-bound sister, Blanche (Joan Crawford), whose own stardom was cut short by a freak “accident.” Pungent Gothic atmospherics and the duet performances of two divas who violently detested one another make for a camp cult classic and one of Aldrich’s biggest hits.
