COMMENTS

Here's What Happened To Baby Jane!
 
This item appeared in the 1962 Warner Bros. pressbook that exhibitors used for publiciizing the film:
 
POP TWIST RECORDINGS - Providing you with an unususal opportunity in conjunction with a picture of sheer suspense like WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? are two recordings which should have wide appeal to disc jockeys and their audiences as well as juke box patrons and record buyers.
 
Two of Frank DeVol's haunting themes from the film have been recorded in Twist tempo with vocals! MGM is releasing a single featuring the voice of Bette Davis along with Debbie Burton in a Twist version of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" On the flip side little Miss Burton sings the parodic "I've Written a Letter To Daddy," which is Miss Davis' theme throughout the picture. The Charmers have also recorded "What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?" as a Twist for Terrace Records. Play these records in your lobby and during intermission in advance of your engagement. Alert disc jockeys and record stores to their unique potential.
 
I don't know whatever happened to The Charmers or their "Baby Jane Twist" recording, but Bette Davis' release, along with the film, became a cult classic!

LYRICS

I'VE WRITTEN A LETTER TO DADDY

Music and words by Frank DeVol
Arranged by Chris Langdon

I've written a letter to Daddy
his address is heaven above.
I've written "Dear Daddy, we miss you
and wish you were with us to love."

Instead of a stamp I put kisses,
the postman said, "That's best to do."
I've written this letter to Daddy,
saying, "I love you."
