What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is a classic 1962 Oscar-winning psychological horror film. While lacking the blood and gore of contemporary horror films, there are enough scary images -- dead rats and dead birds served for lunch, every shriek and cackle leaving Bette Davis's mouth, for instance -- to bring nightmares to younger and more sensitive viewers. A woman is struck by a car driven by a drunk driver and left paralyzed from the waist down. One of the lead characters is consistently drunk, slurring her speech, stumbling and lurching around, and in another scene, a middle-aged man is picked up by the police, extremely drunk. Since it's a movie from the early 1960s, everyone smokes cigarettes. Innuendo is made of a woman's sexual indiscretions by two male studio executives. Profanity implied in some scenes, including a scene where a character mouths the word "bitch." Overall, this classic movie has stood the test of time in no small part to the incredible performances of on and off-screen rivals Davis and Joan Crawford, roles that revitalized their sagging late-period careers.
