From Amazon.co.uk

A cultish horror favourite, 1962's What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? will make you think twice before hungrily unveiling a covered plate of food. Bette Davis stars as Jane Hudson, a onetime child actress and singer. As an elderly woman, she wishes to revive her vaudevillian career, but she has become a grotesque caricature of her former self. Over the years as her star faded, the star of her older sister Blanche (Joan Crawford) rose, outshining the career of the has-been Baby Jane. Jane was relegated to minor roles, which she only won when Blanche demanded that she be awarded them. The film opens years after a calamitous car accident leaves Blanche in a wheelchair, with no one to care for her except the increasingly insane and sadistic Jane and their servant, Norman. Trying to punish Blanche for her years of success, Jane tortures the house-bound woman, slowly trying to starve her to death, all the while attempting to recapture the fame of her youth. This dark drama also stars Victor Buono as the hefty pianist who answers Jane's ad for an accompanist, hoping to milk some money off the demented old woman. Both Buono and Davis were nominated for Oscars for their roles in this suspenseful and somewhat sick thriller that exploited well the real-life antagonism between Davis and Crawford, while at the same time rejuvenating both their careers. --Jenny Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars Divine Feud???? 22 May 2004
By CANDICE
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Whoa!Bette and Joan at their ultimate best. The key to the brilliance of this movie is Bette and Joan trying their best to outact each other, their real life hatred spilling over into this movie, the result- a classic macabre tale of jealousy and revenge, with superb performances from two of cinema's Golden girls. watch out for the twist in the tale!!!!! Perfect classic movie gold.

Thrilling from start to finish. Sinister portrayal of ageing actresses coming to terms with growing old. Added entertainment derives from the two actresses being sisters who have a deep and distant past neither wants to discuss with the other. As they tolerate and exploit each other's weaknesses, a chilling plot unfolds with an unexpected ending.
An edge-of-the-seat thriller playing on the fears of helplessness and lost youth. Truely gripping throughout.
Bette Davis gives a cracking performance as the once famous "Baby Jane" with Joan Crawford playing the vulnerable weaker sibling. The two are matched perfectly for such an entertaining story.

5.0 out of 5 stars UK bluray 9 Dec 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The film is a classic of old school melodrama, endlesly watchable. Nuff said.

I was worried when the UK bluray arrived because it doesn't say "Anniversary edition" on its cover like it does on the Amazon picture, and it doesn't list extras on the back cover.

However, this is the same set as the US bluray release (restored 1080p HD picture and audio, commentary, behind the scenes documentary, Bette Davis documentary etc). The only difference is that its in a standard keepcase instead of digibook packing.

In this movie Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? There are two sisters. Jane being the oldest was a child star and lost her fame when her giant ego got in the way of her career. Her younger sister Blanche, started her own acting career and was a bigger, better hit then Jane was. Jane drove herself insane with jealousy and liquor. Then an "accident" caused Blanche to be put in a wheelchair permenantly. Leaving her in the care of her insane sister. Jane started to slowly starve her sister and torture her as her form of revenge for Blanche stealing her acting title. This movie has twists and turns for a fantastic plot! It is truly a satisfying collectable!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Film Noir 7 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
Two legendary actresses finally paired in this classic Hollywood movie! The film speaks volumes in the way Crawford and Davis approach their roles. There is a definite spark between the two on screen which is more than merely acting.

The extras on this DVD fill in the background of the two stars' career in Hollywood, which is really informative. The commentary, though informative about aspects of the film, is a tad rambling. The documentary about Crawford and Davis could have been much improved by better editing. Why cut from one talking-head to another so quickly? Why cut from one film clip to another after just a few seconds? At one point my head began to spin.

However, the film itself is well worth watching again as a true classic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film from two legends of Hollywood. 14 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Whatever happened to Baby Jane" was a film that was hoped to revive the careers of veterans Bette Davis & Joan Crawford,and it succeeded in doing so. The two actresses were not good friends in real life,to put it mildly, and the tension must have paid off here,as their dislike of each other seems so obvious.
Bette Davis plays Baby Jane Hudson, once famous as a child star,but now nearly forgotten. Her housebound sister is played by Crawford. The nastiness of the way Davis treats her sister still has the power to shock,and the film will have you guessing till the end,as the outcome is never predictable. The moody black & white adds to the atmosphere of the mansion,where most of the film is set. The performances of the two leading ladies are brilliant. This film is a classic.
This special edition is loaded with extras, including a 40 minute biography of Bette Davis,hosted by Jodie Foster,filled with clips from much of Davis's long career,and personal interviews spanning decades,up until near the end of her life in 1989. There is a lengthy BBC interview with Crawford, and a documentary from the time,on the making of Baby Jane, as well as a documentary on the rivalry between the two actresses, and a singing appearance by Davis,singing a tune from the movie,on the Andy Williams show. If you would like to learn more about these two fine actresses,then the extra features on this DVD alone will be an education.

The film alone is worth the purchase price,but get this for the extras too,it will add to your appreciation and understanding of the film and the two legendary actresses.
