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.
