I wonder if the bars are still on Blanche's bedroom window...

The Hancock Park (Los Angeles) house made famous as the residence of the Hudson sisters in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is on the market for the first time in almost 50 years. The price tag? Just under $3.8 million. No word on if the price includes a nosy neighbor on the driveway side.

The outside of the house is still instantly recognizable to most classic film fans, and speaking of the driveway, note the iron gate in case you want to cripple your annoying sister!

Alas, the interiors don't match the film. While the exterior of the house figured prominently in the story, interiors were filmed on a soundstage. In fact, if you scroll through the pictures in the listing, the inside of the house is depressingly modern. But the outside almost makes up for it. Not gonna lie, if I was some crazy gazillionaire, I'd buy the house and then pay a contractor to rebuild the interior to match the movie. 

I wonder what kind of looky-loo traffic they get.
