“Baby Jane” Getting Anniversary Edition

I don’t have a Blu-Ray player, but I guess I’ll have to get one now: on October 9th, Warner Bros. is putting out a 50th anniversary edition of “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?”, a movie so camp that it makes gay men swoon and straight people scratch their heads. Well, most straight people. A mere ten years after “Baby Jane” lit up the box office, Marlon Brando was parodying it in “Last Tango in Paris.” His character held up a dead rat by its tail and pretended to take a bite, and then said to his pretty but appalled young lover, “You know, I’m gonna get some mayonnaise ’cause this really is good with that.”
