Superb cast including John Carradine and Bruce Dern
20 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Wonderful black comedy stars Jo Van Fleet in the title role of Mrs. Cissy Hawk, a lonely widow who runs a prize-winning pig farm, with a penchant for picking up young male loners as potential husbands or handymen. Scheming blackmailer Jason Longfellow (John Carradine), Latin scholar and railroad hobo, sends his confederate Johnny Norton (Bruce Dern) to check out the premises, disappearing after an aborted attempt at robbery. An undeterred Jason then tries using another accomplice, Pete Gogan (Hal Baylor), passing himself off as the young man's uncle. Paul Newlan plays the local sheriff, who ferrets out the blackmail scheme but cannot solve the many disappearances, avoiding the widow's advances all the while. Newlan makes his fourth and final THRILLER (after 12 "The Big Blackout," 15 "The Cheaters," 37 "The Grim Reaper") while the scene-stealing John Carradine essays another role tailor-made for him by scriptwriter Donald S.Sanford (after Jed Carta in episode 43 "Masquerade").
