Staff pick! Katlyn Griffin, Graphic Designer extraordinaire, wants to know WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?

As a child, Jane Hudson was a pampered vaudeville star known to the world as Baby Jane while her younger sister, Blanche, led life in her considerable shadow. Decades pass and Blanche becomes a beautiful, talented movie idol and Jane a has-been. When a car accident cripples Blanche, binding her to a wheelchair, Jane sees her opportunity to regain power and assumes the role of caretaker. Her newly gained dominance completes the transformation of the sugar-sweet child star into a nightmarish caricature of Baby Jane. As she does everything she can to make her sister's life a living hell, including feeding Blanche a dead rat and brutally beating her when she tries to phone for help, Jane plots a comeback, aided by shifty musical director Edwin Flagg.
