Classic Horror Films - Day 13 (WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE - 1962)

'If I wasn't in this chair...!'

In a decaying Hollywood mansion, Jane Hudson, a former child star, and her sister Blanche, a movie queen forced into retirement after a crippling accident, live in virtual isolation. The long awaited pairing between rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford does not disappoint. While Bette has the showier part as Jane, Joan is quite good in her subdued performance as the long suffering Blanche. A classic film with two film legends. Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks.

I reviewed this on my blog a few weeks back. It is one of those great psychological thrillers that we just don't see anymore. Bette knocked it out of the park.
