"Oh, I've got the prettiest mother.. I've got the sweetest mother"...
One of the great black and white films from the old school, this movie has it all. Excellent plot, acting, and characters. Patty McCormick is excellent as Rhoda, a cunning, charming girl with an evil mind. Other stand out performances include Henry Jones as Leroy the handy man, and Eileen Heckart as the grief stricken mother. The black and white makes the film even more surreal, and the acting is very intense in the scenes- just the way I like it. Little charming Rhoda proves that you have to be careful of sweet little girls. Beware and run !
