Storyline

The film is in post-production, and Joan and Bette expect that they will be flooded with high profile movie offers, which is not the case. The scuttlebutt within the public via various leaks is that the film will be a flop. Jack, Bob, Joan and Bette react to the news in different ways, Bette's advertisement in Variety which she later states was meant to be a sarcastic response. However, the film is a smash, positive public and critical response only growing from the first preview in Long Beach. Bob feels that the film could be his springboard to the A-list and he refuses to follow Baby Jane with similar material, which is what Jack wants to do if only to build on its momentum. Despite the film's acclaim and acclaim for Bob, Bette and Joan, the latter two still do not get the recognition in the form of high profile acting offers. Joan does get a script from a surprising source, Pauline, who wrote a script specifically with Joan in mind, the movie which she wants to direct herself. ... Written by Huggo

Best Episode So Far
27 March 2017 | by (Out There in the Dark) – See all my reviews

The preview and success of "BABY JANE" is enjoyable done, capturing an authentic feel of early 60s Hollywood and movie audiences. Both Lange and Sarandon are at their best, delivering sharp dialog with lots of conviction.

What makes this a great episode is the development of director Robert Aldrich's story line, along with that of Pauline Jameson, his assistant. Both actors (Molina and Wright) are excellent (a highlight is the office scene where Aldrich encourages Jameson about a possible directing career. Aldrich is played as a complex character, a director of talent (belatedly recognized), while Jameson never went very far, her character adds a lot of interest in this program. Then there is Stanley Tucci as hard-headed, plain-speaking Jack Warner who won't give Aldrich a break. Last but not least there is Toby Huss as a despicable Frank Sinatra. Along the way there are re-creations of TV appearances by Davis
