'Jane Hudson (Bette Davis) is an aging child star left to care for her wheelchair-bound sister Blanche (Joan Crawford), also a former child actress. Stuck living together in a mansion in old Hollywood, Blanche plots to get even with Jane for the car crash that left her crippled years earlier. But Jane is desperate to keep Blanche imprisoned as she plans a new rise to fame, and tries to hide Blanche's existence from doctors, visitors and neighbors while she devises a way to get rid of her sister.'
"Baby Jane had the chutzpah to cast Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, two has-been movie stars who famously despised each other, as has-been movie star sisters locked in a poisonous, co-dependent cycle of neediness and contempt. In a famous bit of Hollywood lore, Davis ordered a Coca-Cola vending machine for the cast and crew solely to antagonize her bitter onscreen and offscreen rival, whose husband was a Pepsi executive."
