Few films blur the line between "cult classic" and "canonical masterpiece" as thoroughly as "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" When "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" hit theaters in 1962, it was a low-budget film starring two “washed-up” actresses in Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Under the old studio system it was a film…
