What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? SE (R2) in July

Warner Home Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (Two Disc Special Edition) for 17th July 2006. Bette Davis plays former child star ‘Baby’ Jane Hudson who is taking care of her wheelchair bound sister Blanche (Joan Crawford), herself once a leading movie star whose career eclipsed her sister Jane when they became adults. Now both forgotten aging relics of old Hollywood, the sisters live together in a chilling atmosphere of bitter sibling rivalry and mutual distrust. Their relationship breaks down completely when Jane decides to relaunch her career as an entertainer and holds her sister prisoner in her own room. This much-loved claustrophobic thriller from director Robert Aldrich and based on the novel by Henry Farrell remains a horror classic.
