Good to watch Old Movie

by MLP on 11/28/2007

Nice to watch an old movie and it also provided another disc to see how the movie was made. Enjoyed seeing Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. I was a child at that time and Bette scared me. Now i wanted to see this again. Wonderful to watch. Purchased two extras for my aunts to see also

Product Overview

A far-fetched but thoroughly engaging black comedy of two faded movie stars; one is a cripple at the mercy of her demented sister, Baby Jane Hudson. A chilling masterpiece in terror, madness and macabre characterizations.

Review I've never really been a fan of Bette Davis, but I do have to admit she gives one hell of a performance in this movie, as does Victor Buono as the somewhat decrepit musician she befriends. I'm less impressed with Joan Crawford, but in all fairness, she doesn't have the good role. This movie marks the beginning of a truly odd subgenre of horror films which found challenging roles for actresses that were most likely considered over-the-hill at that time, and there's no doubt there is a lot of dimension to the grotesque character of Baby Jane in this movie, and it gave both actresses a new phase in their career, though only Davis would really pull it off; Crawford would end up in the likes of Berserk and Trog.

Review Robert Aldrich's trashy camp thriller comedy/melodrama was based on a story by Henry Farrell. The two fading and feuding older 'ice queen' stars, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, who never got along were paired up in a gimmicky twist in casting by getting the dramatic actresses to stoop to playing in a lowly horror pic. Ms. Crawford's resentment was reinforced after Davis' nomination for Best Actress--which convinced Crawford she had been had. Wearing grotesque costumes that made them look like witches was part of the deal. In any case, costume designer Norma Koch won an Oscar for her work.

Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum A chilling, disturbing movie.
Joel Meares, close to genre perfection as one is likely to come.
