On the back of news that a new play is heading to the West End about Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and their time spent filming classic movie Whatever Happened To Baby Jane, Binkie thought it would be helpful to provide the producers with some alternative casting advice lest Anita Dobson or Greta Scacchi drop out!

And so, we present, Maria Friedman as Baby Jane Hudson (played by Ms Davis), and the divine Tracie Bennett as Blanche (aka Joan Crawford)!

Never let it said we don’t help, even when help isn’t required.
