| Miriam Hopkins in last film role.
Low-budget psychedelic thriller in the "Baby Jane" genre, but it features a terrific performance by the legendary Miriam Hopkins in her last performance (complete with semi-nudity and love scenes), joined by Gale Sondergaard and the under-rated John David Garfield (close your eyes and he sounds like his famous father). The film was never released to theaters and the video came out in England after Hopkins'death. Hopkins portrays an aging alcoholic movie star living in seclusion with Sondergaard as her stern secretary-companion. She breaks her hip and drug-addict psycho Garfield is hired to help care for her. Hopkins and Garfield begin a bizarre affair and the murders begin. Filmed in Norma Talmadge's former estate and with a slightly larger budget, it could have been successfully released. Still a real curio though and worth tracking down if you can find it. Try the UK if you can play PAL or look under the title "Hollywood Horror House." (Originally filmed as "The Comeback.") It deserves a proper DVD release, as does Hopkins' previous movie, Russ Meyer's "Fanny Hill."
