Paid in Puke S3E5: What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

what-ever-happened-to-baby-jane-watching-recommendation-videoSixteenByNineJumbo1600On this episode of Paid in Puke, we say “I love you,” to Robert Aldrich’s 1962 “Hag Horror” camp classic, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as two washed up performers cloistered together in their Hollywood dwelling. We discuss Davis’ master class in committing to a role and Crawford’s inability to elicit any sort of sympathy for her character.

The Probs are extra Hot in this one, but extremely entertaining all the same. Check out our Facebook page this week for some pics of Baxter when she dressed as Baby Jane Hudson for Halloween (and nobody got it).

PiP will take a brief mid-season hiatus but we’ll be back with the second half of season 3 on June 23rd. Until then, stay safe and sane.

Screenrant List: 15 Regrettable Final Roles for Great Actors

chris-farley-in-almost-heroesGiven the option, we imagine that most actors would choose to go out in a blaze of glory, hitting a career high, or maybe even making their best film, just prior to their death. But it usually doesn’t work out that way. Of course, bad movies happen to good actors all the time, but they don’t always get to make up for it before kicking the bucket. What’s worse, the films they would have preferred to sweep under the rug tend to gain extra notoriety on account of their…finality.

Here are 15 roles in films that acclaimed, promising, and/or beloved actors would likely prefer never to have seen the light of day. The problems run the gamut. Sometimes, these actors are quite clearly phoning it in. Very occasionally, it’s a role of which they should be utterly ashamed, or their talents were simply squandered. Often, however, their performance is the best thing about these films that are so bad, that they’re…still pretty bad. Only a few of these titles qualify for “cult” status. The rest are Rotten Tomatoed and Razzie Approved.
