What happens when two Hollywood divas age out of the star system and find themselves isolated in a decaying mansion with no support and no attention? What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is what happens. But am I talking about the fictional characters of Blanche and Baby Jane, or am I talking about the actresses who played them, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis?

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is creepy and riveting, not the least because it’s so damn meta. The subtitle for this flick could well have been Clash of the Titans. Released in 1962, people flocked to the theatres and plopped down good money to see Whatever Happened to Joan and Bette?, and they were not disappointed.

Here’s a gallery of gloriously weird images and 10 Things About What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

    If I absolutely had to, it’s when Jane does her “Letter to Daddy” number for Edwin. Everything about it is so over-the-top and skeezy, only a real slimeball would stick around and encourage her!
