Momma Cyclops is Off & Running
Today this movie would never be made, simply cause there is no star that can handle it. Its a shame, really. Its not that the movie is so magnificent or anything, its just so dominated by the leading lady that you can't imagine how it would be done today, if at all, and with who? Faye Dunaway? She's still living down "Mommie Dearest", twenty years later. Anne Bancroft? She's not hateful and lovable at the same time and not an icon. Davis could play a monster yet keep her fans and probably gain more as a result of playful movies like this.

All the real stars are gone, and watching this makes that painfully obvious.

Bette Davis devours the rest of the cast, and doesn't even bother spitting them out. And all we can do it watch and enjoy. No true fan of hers can do without this.
