Here's Where You Can Stream What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?

"What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" marks the only time screen legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford appeared in a film together. The 1962 psychological horror-thriller centers around former child star "Baby Jane" Hudson (Davis) and her sister Blanche (Crawford), a successful actress whose career is cut short after a car accident leaves her paralyzed. The women reside together in Blanche's Hollywood mansion, and their lifelong sibling rivalry takes a dark turn when Jane's alcoholism and deteriorating mental health cause Blanche to consider having her sister committed. After learning of Blanche's plans, Jane begins to torment her sister, holding her prisoner while attempting an ill-conceived comeback.

"What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" was a critical and box office success, earning five Oscar nominations, including a best actress nod for Davis. The movie's enduring popularity can be partially credited to the off-screen antics of its stars. Crawford and Davis were long-time adversaries whose turbulent relationship has been attributed to professional jealousy and personal drama. Their backstage bickering, which boiled over into the press, is chronicled in "American Horror Story" creator Ryan Murphy's "Feud: Bette and Joan" (2017). Although many copycat films followed, lightning never struck twice, and in this case, life imitating art resulted in movie magic. Here's where you can stream this horror classic.
