Original Title:

What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?

An obituary for Golden Age Hollywood, this is a savage satire on celebrity and the media-fuelled rivalry between stars Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Their performances are brave, but behind the macabre humour lies the chilling truth of morality.

Sour as month-old milk and with a tang of off-screen animosity in its mouth, Robert Aldrich's melodrama is still hysterical in every sense of the word.
