Southern Gothic in just under an hour
30 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the early days of television comes this Gore Vidal penned tale of familial conflict and dying traditions. As the matriarch of a family tries to cling to the past her daughter fights to pull away from her suffocating influence.

One of the wonderful things about these old teleplays is the chance to see the convergence of new and old talent side by side. In this case we have the queen of the scene stealers, Miriam Hopkins, doing her level best to consume every piece of scenery in sight and Elizabeth Montgomery working her way up towards stardom that was still several years in the future. They make an interesting contrast, Miriam although playing in her customary big style still grounds her character with a believable fear of changing times that she doesn't understand. Elizabeth much more grounded and wise already to the fact that TV requires more subdued playing is all cool observation.

They are more of less the whole show although Ruth White has some nice moments as Aunt Belle, weak but wise in her way. For the curious this also provides a glimpse of Wyatt Cooper, future husband of Gloria Vanderbilt and with her the father of newsman Anderson Cooper.
