Joan Crawford followed her smash hit What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with this memorable psychological thriller about an ax murderer trying for a new start in life. Crawford plays Lucy Harbin, a woman who spent 20 years in a mental institution after killing her unfaithful husband and his lover. Released from the asylum, Lucy tries to renew her relationship with her now-adult daughter (Diane Baker, of Marnie and The Silence of the Lambs), only to become the prime suspect when the ax starts falling again. The supporting cast features Hollywood veteran Leif Erickson and George Kennedy, and the original screenplay was written by none other than master horror writer and Psycho novelist Robert Bloch.

Mexican singer-songwriter Marco Antonio Solis is well into middle age, but he's far from surrendering his status as a heartthrob -- one he's held since he was a teen. Today he delivers pop love songs as well as regional Mexican music for fans who buy tickets to see him in concert, but his 2013 album, Gracias Por Estar Aqui, puts its focus squarely on contemporary romantic ballads. He's a huge concert draw throughout Latin America and regularly tours the arena circuit in the U.S., where his 2013 album hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin albums chart. Solis debuted as a judge on La Voz... Mexico, the Mexican version of the the TV talent show The Voice, in 2013.
