Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

What happens when a spoilt child star has to care for her bitter, crippled alcoholic sister? As their mutual hatreds and jealousies take hold, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis go to town on each other in a case of life overtaking art. Aldrich was unable to control the pair on set, even as assault took place before the camera, and the verbal fireworks are chilling in their authenticity. One of the nastiest peeks into theHollywoodstar machine, both on the page and off, and the film which kick-started the psycho-biddy genre.
