Storyline

A detective questions baby-sitter Lottie Slocum about the murder of Clara Nash, for whom Lottie had been working. Lottie exasperates the detective by her aimless chatter and her undisguised excitement. After the detective leaves, she tells a friend about the night of the murder. Lottie disliked Clara, who was separated from her husband and was seeing another man. Lottie is so vocal in her disapproval of Clara, and in her affection for Mr. Nash, that her friend wonders whether Lottie was somehow involved. Later, Lottie is threatened by the dead woman's boyfriend. She herself hopes that the situation will give her an opportunity to get closer to Mr. Nash. Written by Snow Leopard

I love Thelma Ritter
26 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What? Thelma Ritter as a "thoroughly classless mess?" As far as I'm concerned, Ritter lifts every film or TV show she's in, including this one which I just watched. Her comic timing, delivery, and poignancy can't be beat. I find her believable in every scene here. I think the previous commenter is objecting more to the script than the performance. As far as Ritter goes, I think she is one of the most underrated actresses of our time. Her performance in the opening of "All About Eve" is amazing. As is her performances in the Doris Day/Rock Hudson movies. She was also great in "Rear Window" and "The Misfits." She was nominated for six Academy Awards.
