A bright satirical comedy about an innocent high school girl granted her wishes by a student prodigy. A broad satire of teenage culture in the sixties, its targets ranging from progressive education to beach movies.
British college professor seeks peace in a California beach house but has nothing but trouble from an uninvited female 'juvenile delinquent', a neighbor with a mischievous dog, and a bevy of amorous American woman.
The wife and mistress of the abusive headmaster of a boy's school plot and carry out his murder. They dump his body in the murky swimming pool at the school and await for it to surface. After several days, some unusual circumstances point to clues that he is not dead after all. Written by
It may be heresy to say so, but this gripping remake of DIABOLIQUE actually surpasses the legendary original. The film benefits from the eerie Puget Sound locations, and the dynamic chemistry between Joan Hackett, Tuesday Weld and Sam Waterston (but especially Hackett and Weld). The script is clever, and the "twist" at the very end is far more chilling in this version. The original is still a great film, but the 2nd tv remake (with Melissa Gilbert) and the 1996 movie with Sharon Stone and Isabel Adjani both pale in comparison to this unfortunately forgotten but superior version.
