You know, we’re right back where we started. When I was on the stage, you had to depend on me for everything. Even the food you ate came from me. Now you have to depend on me for your food again. So, you see, we’re right back where we started.Baby Jane Hudson, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane
FIRST TIME VIEWERS: BETHANY, CHERYL, JOE
We take on yet another story of Hollywood glamour and stardom gone bad, as we learn the story of Baby Jane Hudson (Bette Davis) and Blanche Hudson (Joan Crawford), sisters and bitter rivals in life and career. Robert Aldrich’s classic film has taken on a second life, as it is celebrated for its campy, catty attitude and melodramatic story.
What ever happens when you put two of the biggest movie stars ever together and let them play two of the biggest movie stars ever? What ever happens when a former child actor feels overshadowed by her sister? What ever happens when you put two reclusive, unstable people together and make them rely on each other? What exactly did ever happen that night in the driveway? Do you wonder what ever would happen if you decided not to listen to this episode? But you are Blanche, you are gonna listen!
