Here's the theme song that didn't really exist for the movie "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?", sung by Bette Davis who wasn't a singer on a TV show that nobody remembers. As with my previous post--Bette singing the theme to "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte"--you can feel the disbelief in the room as Bette boogies down. Why she chose at this late stage in her career to take up singing remains a mystery--one that she took to the grave with her. But I do like her spirit and if nothing else it shows that Bette had nerves of steel and a certain sense of humor about herself.
