Camp at its best

by HesterPrine08 on Oct 26, 2008

So William Castle was hoping to get out of the B movie game. After seeing Ms. Crawford in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" he wrote this script with her in mind. And lucky for us it never elevated him into the A lister category. Joan Crawford is Lucy Harbin an older woman married to a younger man. One weekend she's out of town and the Mr. is out on the prowl. She comes back early to find her husband in bed with some young thing. So what does she do? She gets an axe and takes off their heads. Too bad their three year daughter witnessed it all. Oops. Flash forward twenty years later and Lucy is ready to be released into the care of her now grown daughter (Carol) who has been living with her aunt and uncle. Carol is happy to have her mother back, she's an artist and is engaged to the rich boy the next farm over. She is trying to help her mother adjust but something isn't quite right. Maybe that's because after mommy dearest arrives more axe murders start to happen? Hmmmm wonder who's doing that? There are some truly brilliant moment thanks to Joan Crawford. Check out the scene when Carol introduces her fiancee to Lucy. Lucy goes from shy memaw to cougar on the prowl from 0-60. And we have advertising synergy too! Well placed crates of Pepsi Cola in one kitchen scene, of course Ms. Crawford was married to the president of Pepsi Cola at the time. And a blink and you'll just miss it un-credited cameo from Lee Majors as the unfortante Mr. Harbin at the begining. And let's not forget George Kennedy as the unlucky loud mouth farm hand. All around this is one fun film that doesn't really leave you guessing but its a hoot to watch.
