Robert Aldrich filmed exteriors here for his gothic masterpiece Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? It was ostensibly inside this mansion that wheelchair-bound Blanche Hudson (Joan Crawford) and her sister Baby Jane (Bette Davis) lived out their tragic lives of fear and hatred. Blanche: "You wouldn't be able to do these awful things to me if I weren't still in this chair." Jane (with all the Bette Davis intonation that only Bette Davis could provide): "But you are Blanche! You are in that chair!" In reality, all interiors were of course filmed at Producers', now Raleigh Studios, at 5300 Melrose.
