Writer Heidi Honeycutt has more to say about our Bette vs. Joan series here.

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?
1962, Warner Bros., 134 min, USA, Dir: Robert Aldrich

Forget about its reputation as a camp classic; this first-rate study of the most dysfunctional siblings in cinema history is a classic, period. Bette Davis is unforgettable as a washed-up child star who passes the time by torturing her invalid sister Joan Crawford, and Robert Aldrich's direction crosses horror with film noir to create one of the most chilling yet darkly comic masterpieces of all time. With the great, underrated Victor Buono in probably his most memorable role (he was Oscar-nominated as supporting actor, as was Davis, for actress).
