Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? review

Bette Davis and Joan Crawford legendarily sparred during filming of this 1962 psychological thriller that spawned decades of bunny-boilers.

And it shows in the deliciously grotesque and antagonistic performances, the diva duo playing former child star siblings now grown old.

Baby Jane (Davis) abuses her disabled sister Blanche (Crawford) while clinging to her past with a creepy psychotic zeal.

WHTBJ remains a masterclass in ‘uglying up’ and a relevant comment on the destructive nature of celebrity. Lohan, take note.
