Did You Know?

Goofs

The execution with which the story begins, supposedly in eighteenth-century England, employs the "long drop" method of hanging which did not appear until after the 1868 reforms which ended public executions and thus did not encourage protracted suffering. See more »

Patricia Barry plays an aging actress who gets her hands on a legendary wig, crafted by a witch, that de-ages and beautifies her. It also makes her homicidal toward certain men in her life. Some of this oddball plot works and some of it doesn't, but it is certainly a clever concept. The ending is good for a jump out of your seat. There is a sequence near the end of a party at which everyone is doing the Twist, including Barry. It is hysterical, but it also brings back fond memories of a more innocent and naive time. Worth a watch, even if it's not perfect. Barry, who was a very familiar face on TV for over two decades, acts up a storm.
