The Film Club meets every two weeks to conduct business then screen and discuss a film. WIU students and the public are welcome.
This week's film is Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (dir by Robert Aldrich, 1962).
Summary: In this Grand Guignol chiller, Hudson sisters Jane (Bette Davis) and Blanche (Joan Crawford), both aging actresses, share a rotting Los Angeles mansion, where Jane, once a vaudeville headliner, remains lost in her deranged childhood fantasies. When a devastating car crash -- blamed on a drunken Jane -- leaves Blanche wheelchair-bound, her increasingly psychotic sister seizes the chance to settle a jealous score. (Netflix)
