Description

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? Cashing in on the notorious real-life rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, producer/director Robert Aldrich (Kiss Me Deadly) smartly secured the services of the battling divas for his twisted psycho-drama about two sisters, one a former child vaudeville star and the other a crippled ex-silent star of the screen, who are bound together in hate in a house of fear. Both Davis and co-star Victor Buono received Oscar noms. (1962, 134 min, 35mm) + CARRIE High school is a snake pit as Carrie White (Sissy Spacek, in an Oscar nominated performance) ignites her telekinetic powers to thwart that special brand of cruelty unique to teenage girls. This melding of minds between author Stephen King and director Brian De Palma created one of the horror genre’s powerhouse classics. Piper Laurie (also Oscar nominated for her turn), Betty Buckley, William Katt, and Amy Irving co-star. (1976, 98 min, DCP)
