MPAA Rated R for some violence/bloody images

Sex & Nudity

  • No sex or nudity. Dress styles conform to the 1930s.

Violence & Gore

  • The original rating was GP; today would be R for graphic mutilation (childhood flashback of a farm accident), gore (blood pools) and butchered animals (before the Humane Society guidelines).


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Drinking and smoking are shown as everyday events for the 1930s.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The Helen character suffers from a serious persecution complex with delusions. More than once she hallucinates being a murder victim. The final scene of dead Adelle dressed for a show (after Helen murders her) while Helen plays the piano might cause nightmares. Not for the squeamish.
