Storyline

In 1970s interviews, Joan (Blondell) and Olivia continue to provide context into Joan (Crawford) and Bette's relationship, including that Jack put Joan under contract at Warner's (at a pittance) in the early 1940s solely to irk Bette, with the dynamic between the two and within Hollywood changing with Joan's success in Mildred Pierce (1945), after which it was Joan who got the plum roles and Bette largely the ones as housewives and slatterns. Back in 1962, filming on "Baby Jane" is well under way, and Joan and Bette are largely getting along as well as can be expected in their joint goal of making the movie a success and showing their joint dominance on the set. The latter issue does not sit well with Bob, as although he realizes he is considered a B-list director, he is still the director who should command the respect of his cast and crew.

This is more a parody of the time than a homage.
21 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I understand the desire for a period piece to be 'authentic', but the constant shoving of cigarettes in their mouths is triggering my gag reflex. Yes, we get it, already: everyone smoked and drank heavily, you don't have to hit us over the head with it. Despite this 'all-star' cast, the action seems rushed, the dialogue is trite, and the delivery is farcical.
