The relationship between a jealous, former child star and her sister take a twisted, dark turn after their careers flip-flop and a car accident leaves the more successful one confined to a wheelchair. A remake of the 1962 thriller 'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?'.
I've seen the original zillions of times but have only seen the remake once all the way through, though I seem to remember getting in on the last part a few years later when I happened to notice that it was on again.
Either it was on again or else something similar to it.
I can only remember seeing it once.
One thing that especially impressed me about this one was that it seemed to me that the beach scene offered a glimmer of hope.
Blanche told the cops that her sister was in need of professional help so to please be sure that she got it--and I also had the feeling that help just might have arrived in time that Blanche's life also was spared.
This would mean that the two sisters would have another chance at a good relationship with each other instead of one being dead and the other either being permanently locked away in a mental institution or else a prison--and seen as "hopeless" either way.
