YouTube Treasure from 1962: Bette Davis Sings “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?”


This is one of the wildest things ever.

After telling variety show host Andy Williams that her new record sounds like Chubby Checker, legendary Bette Davis proceeds to belt out a tune inspired by her new Granny Guignol film Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? as Williams runs offstage for cover.

And the Oscar winner really rasps it out in her inimitable away, complete with hip shaking in a shimmery blue dress, and she doesn’t miss a note!

I’ve just written a letter to da-ddy to tell him how marvelous this clip is.

It’s helping me forget that there are rats in the cellar.
