Robert Aldrich directs this nervy thriller, at once a character study in the Grand Guignol tradition and a quintessential entry in the pantheon of camp classics. Bette Davis (in her last Oscar-nominated role) plays Baby Jane Hudson, a former vaudeville child star living with and caring for her sister Blanche (Joan Crawford), an aging Hollywood star whose career was cut short after a mysterious accident. When a local television station begins airing Blanche’s films, Jane decides to revive her own act--and to see to her own sister’s demise. (2K DCP presentation)
