Did You Know?


Trish says, "He's one of those kids who'll end up on a clock tower with an AK-47". This is a reference to Charles Joseph Whitman aka "The Texas Tower Sniper". On August 1st, 1966 at around 11:30 a.m. Whitman climbed the tower at the University of Texas in Austin, laden with multiple firearms, and began shooting at people from atop the tower.

In total he murdered 16 people (including his mother and his wife, both of whom he stabbed to death before he went to Texas University) and injured 31 people. Contrary to popular belief he did not, in fact, have an AK-47; he had a .30 caliber M1 carbine semi-automatic. See more »

Absorbing, but not "The Children's Hour."
20 September 2015 | by TahhhSee all my reviews

I found the film very absorbing, but if you're looking for Lillian Hellman's "The Children's Hour," this isn't it.

The fault doesn't lie with the actors or production qualities or the director: I think it's mostly that the script is a bit predictable, and not terribly daring: there are clear-cut good guys and bad guys motivated, on the one hand, by goodness and benevolence, and, on the other, by unspeakable evil and malice.

That is not suggest it's a waste of time: just that the screenplay struck me as too tame and too safe, instead of straying into more dangerous territory, raising tougher questions, and not resolving everything in the manner of (as I've seen others on IMDb saying, justifiably) of a T.V. "Movie of the Week." There are good, emotional scenes and quarrels, which will draw you in, however, performed with honesty and skill by a very fine cast.
