What Ever Happened To Baby Jane

Overview

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? gets a well-deserved special-edition treatment from Warner Bros. on this two-disc set. It has received a new letterboxed, anamorphic video transfer that is a noticeable improvement on the previous DVD of this title; the film's rich black-and-white cinematography is much sharper here and benefits from a higher level of contrast that shows off its fine details. The audio portion of the disc sticks to the original mono soundtrack; thankfully, this is a well-mixed track that offers ...

Overview

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? gets a well-deserved special-edition treatment from Warner Bros. on this two-disc set. It has received a new letterboxed, anamorphic video transfer that is a noticeable improvement on the previous DVD of this title; the film's rich black-and-white cinematography is much sharper here and benefits from a higher level of contrast that shows off its fine details. The audio portion of the disc sticks to the original mono soundtrack; thankfully, this is a well-mixed track that offers nice, crisp sound. Plenty of extras are also included for the film's fans. On the first disc are a theatrical trailer and a commentary by filmmaker Charles Busch and film historian John Epperson alias Lypsinka. The commentary is a mixed bag; it offers some interesting information about Hollywood history and the camp appeal of the film but feels a little rushed and awkward. The second disc offers a variety of documentary featurettes. First up is "Bette And Joan: Blind Ambition," a retrospective exploration of the two stars' careers by a series of critics and film historians that was produced for this set. Also included is "All About Bette," a comprehensive television special hosted by Jodie Foster, and "A Film Portrait: Joan Crawford," a BBC documentary. Each of these specials offers plentiful information and insight into what made these two stars tick and the one-of-a-kind chemistry they brought to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? There is also a vintage making-of featurette about the film and an amusing clip of Bette Davis appearing on The Andy Williams Show to sing a ditty about the film. All in all, this two-disc edition of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is worth the time for the film's fan base.
