Bette Davis Singing What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

5 April 2012 2:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Bette Davis sings "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" Bette Davis would have turned 104 today. The clip below, in which Davis sings "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?," is from the December 20, 1962, episode of The Andy Williams Show. ("What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?," song lyrics: "She could dance! She could sing! Make the biggest theater a ring! … I see old movies on TV. And they're always a thrill to me. My daddy says I can be just like her. How I wish, I wish, I wish I wish I were!") What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? was released that year, earning Davis her tenth — and last — Academy Award nomination. Robert Aldrich directed the sleeper hit, which also featured Joan Crawford and Victor Buono. The beginning of the "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" song, minus the lyrics, can be heard on the radio right before the film's grand finale. »

Interview: Actor James Cromwell on Role in Oscar-Nominated ‘The Artist’

30 January 2012 9:31 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The character actor has always been a fixture in Hollywood culture, and there are few as unique as James Cromwell. He’s had many memorable roles in films like “Babe,” “L.A. Confidential” and within the “Star Trek” legacy. Currently, he portrays Clifton in the Oscar-nominated “The Artist.”

Cromwell was born of Hollywood royalty. His father was director John Cromwell (”Of Human Bondage,” “Since You Went Away”) and his mother was notable 1930s film actress Kay Johnson. He grew up in New York City, and studied acting at the Carnegie Mellon school in Pittsburgh. After years of stage work, he broke into TV in the mid-1970s, with a noteworthy role in “All in the Family,” as the talked-about-yet-never-seen character of Stretch Cunningham (see story below). This started a series of supporting parts in films and TV throughout the next couple of decades.
