5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best May 14 2009
Format:DVD
This film is a classic! I can't imagine anyone else playing this role other than Bette. She really owns it. Crawford, on other hand, was decent, but I'm sure anyone else could have replaced her...OUCH!! This dvd also comes with lot's of great extras---totally recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever happened to baby jane is such a riot! Feb. 12 2009
Format:DVD
If you have a wicked cruel sense of humour and a drama queen sister you love to hate, this is the movie for you two to watch. My 12 year old niece was surprised how entertaining this old black and white movie was, she still raves about this film and still sings the theme song "letter to daddy" to this very day.

3.0 out of 5 stars She's now known as Geriatric Jane Jan. 25 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I had wanted to see this movie for yonks. I had assumed that Bette Davis' character had never been a star, and that she was only cruel to Joan Crawford's character because SHE had been a child star! Once all this confusion was cleared up, I began to actually watch the film.
Bette Davis was excellent as Baby Jane because she was so ugly, unpredictable and desperate. She never missed a beat... unless she was having a particularly insane day. You know what it's like when you're stuck in the past and you can't get over the fact that you're not five years old anymore... you don't know what that's like? Oh, good.
There are a couple of slip ups in the movie, deeming it a little unrealistic, but if you didn't let them pass, you'd have the movie end prematurely I guess.
It is kind of haunting and sad to see the photos and memoirs of both women when they were young, loved and famous. It really shows what damage you can do to yourself when you're not willing to age gracefully. (Take note, Melanie Griffith)
This was quite a demented flick, and I was left with a slightly off after-taste once it ended. It makes you wonder if Shirley Temple was ever that crazy, or maybe whether Macauley Culkin is going to end up in an asylum. Worth a look, but not if you're looking for a reason to smile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic suspense... Jan. 25 2010
By Raymond A. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bette Davis and Joan Crawford at their finest! They hated each other off screen and it translates wonderfully on screen! It is yet again another film that proves that you can have suspense, and frightening scenes WITHOUT gore or computer generated effects. It relies on lighting, sound and acting TALENT to get the message across.The picture and sound quality is amazing and reproduces well through 5.1 surround sound. For fans of smart horror as appossed to "Shock Schlok" I highly recommend this film as well as "Hush, hush sweet Charlotte"

What can you say about a movie starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. An absolute classic and just as good today as when it was released.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHO the Hell is Norman? July 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Check out the editorial review "Sadistic Jane and their servant Norman????" The only servant, err, make that housekeeper in this saga is ELVIRA [No, NOT THAT one!] who meets ..... [Clunk!~ Thud!]
WELL, this utterly dark little Gem of Joy still pack many a wallop!
No quite dated, but such an acidic picture of Tinseltown - as a matter of fact you can still see these old [er] Dolls and Guys on Hollywood Boulevard - or Rodeo Drive [botox-powered] for that matter.
IT hasn't really aged that badly - Crawford is superb as the wheelchair bound glam queen Blance ~ utterly dependent on her increasingly insane sister Jane ~ Davis probably on a par with her turn in THE STAR. Davis sacrifices all for this role, including figure and looks, shuffling around the house in flip-flops, dragging on a cigarette and swigging booze has NEVER been this fun!
Bring along a creepy VICTOR BUONO [debut role] as a grifter with an accent and his dear old Ma ... nasty little jewels they are - check out the scene with Davis and Buono and the sandwich plate ... then the booze scene later! Priceless [It's almost Norman Desmond and Joe - the later years].
Superior lensing and direction etc. etc. etc.
Davis daughter BD HYMAN plays the teen next door.
Roaring fun for late at night viewing - double billed with Sunset Boulevard.
[Now wasn't there a musical version of this one ....?]

In "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?" you really DO find out, indeed!

But what horrors you have to endure to see the truth and consequences! With twists, turns, torture & anti-climactic scenes all played to the hilt by the Miss Hudsons (Bette Davis and Joan Crawford), respectively, you will never be able to look at your pet parakeet the same way again.
Miss Baby Jane Hudson, played with great, grotesque gusto by Davis who was once the belle of the ball. Kind of a Shirley Temple of her era. Baby Jane was daddy's girl and Jane, therefore, has quite an Electra complex that is and has been exhibited her entire life.
Her sister, Miss Blanche Hudson, played "aptly and sapply" by Crawford, has a long and lasting career as an adult movie star but is now wheelchair bound because of a little "accident" betwixt the sisters many years back. Jane is the caretaker of Blanche since the "accident" and they both live off of the residuals of Blanche's long and prosperous film career before she became crippled.
After a local California TV station decides to run summer afternoon, back to back Blanche Hudson films, Baby Jane gets that ol' jealous feeling brewing again and wants desparately to revitalize her childhood career. Baby Jane hires pianist from the classifieds, Mr. Edward Flagg, played in a great understated role by Victor Buono, who has his own Oedipal yearnings and problems. They make a great and perfect pair of drunks and crazies, let me tell ya.
Jane is certainly unstable and is likened to a gin and vodka guzzling 60 year old broad with a six year old spoiled brat mentality. SCARY combo, right there!

One of my all time favourites. The story is very frightening between to two rival sisters. The make-up and acting of both Davis and Crawford are exceptional.
