Jennifer West

  1. Joan Crawford, Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? 1962.  Sisters, sisters, such horrendous sisters…  Bette Davis is Baby Jane Hudson, ex-child star, still jealous of her sister Joan Crawford’s better, well longer, career and  deciding to do something diabolical about it.  In case the two bitter enemies couldn’t face working together (Davis even tried to grab the rights and produce the film sans Crawford!), the hag-horrors might have been Ingrjd Bergman and Tallulah Bankhead or Ginger Rogers and Marlene Dietrich, to name just four earlier possibilities. There are more…  Susan Hayward, Rita Hayworth, Kathrine Hepburn, Jennifer Jones,  Agnes Moorhead for the sadistic Jane and Claudette Colbert, Olivia de Havilland, Marlene Dietrich and TV actress Jennifer West  in the  mix for the masochistic Blanche. (West’s next  (stage) role was… Eva Peron.
