Whatever happened to Baby Jane 2 Weeks, 6 Days ago  
Just watched this again on BBC4 - hadn't seen it since it came out in the 60s. Tremendous performance by Bette Davis; she should have won that Oscar.

It's all OTT with ham acting all throughout the film, it's more camp than the old Batman and Robin TV show and the score music is awful.

I did laugh out loud when she burst in to song with 'I've Written A Letter To Daddy' at beginning of the film. I was signing one off when the film started, when I first watched in the mid 80's.

However it's a guilty pleasure to watch.

She was great in that film, by turns disturbing and hilarious. She couldn't have been vain to take a role like that.

I doubt neither star took the roles seriously. It's like watching a stage play with amateurs.

I thought it was fabulous. Funnily enough my favourite actor was Victor Buono who was terrific in that part. Also under rated, Elvira; very hard being normal amongst all the insanity.
