What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
+ intro by Justin Johnson, Lead Programmer
The dream team of off-screen rivals, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, proves irresistible viewing.
Dir Robert Aldrich
With Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Victor Buono
The dream team of off-screen rivals Davis and Crawford proves to be irresistible viewing as they play sparring sisters living together, both with shattered Hollywood dreams behind them. The film presents a grotesque, voyeuristic view of how the industry forgets, but it’s the increasingly cruel build-up of tension between the sisters in their claustrophobic home that is at the heart of this all-time classic.
