The wheelchair-bound matriarch of an English family uses her handicap to cynically manipulate all those around her. She coldly destroys a daughter's relationship with a man she truly loves, and her machinations almost drive the son's fiance to suicide. As the family realizes what she is doing, she becomes even more calculating - and mentally unbalanced. Written by
Incredible evil in a seemingly quiet English home. Susan Peters is step-mother to three grown children and slowly becomes a dominating force over the entire family. She breaks up romance for one daughter and drives her son's fiancee to suicide. The youngest daughter Christine,played by Peggy Ann Garner,is driven to give an overdose of pills to her sister,thinking that she needs to protect her mother at all costs. Peggy Ann gives a very stirring performance when confronted with this.
