On this day in 1962, Warner Brothers released one of the greatest goth/camp thrillers ever with WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? Coming out of mothballs retirement to star, legendary rivals BETTE DAVIS and JOAN CRAWFORD revitalized their careers and generated a lot of tabloid ink with notorious tales of infighting and backbiting. Despite their antics (both on and off screen) the public’s re-interest in their careers opened the door for other iconic actresses ‘of a certain age’ to return to work. Produced and directed by ROBERT ALDRICH and based on the eerie novel by HENRY FARRELL, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? has probably inspired more Halloween costumes than almost any spooky film in history.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? is available now on DVD and Blu-ray
