Here’s one…

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962):

This bizarre, gruesome, and yes, completely over-the-top star vehicle for two women, who in real life certainly reveled in melodrama, was likely green-lit thanks to the earlier success of Psycho, as well as the casting of Joanne Woodward and her real-life nemesis Bette Davis.



The crazy, abusive behavior of Davis’ character Baby Jane toward Woodward, who plays her crippled sister Blanche, including serving Blanche a dead rat for supper, is both terrifying and hilarious to watch. Much to Woodward’s chagrin, Davis was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance.

The rest are here.
