This movie is a MUST for anyone who is a Bette Davis and/or Olivia DeHaviland fan! It shows that these two great actresses are capable of doing any type of role; from a character who can be oh so sweet, to someone who is perfectly evil or mad as the Mad Hatter, and why today's crop of actress cannot hold a birthday candle to either one of these great stars!!

Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte remains one of the Grand Guignols of all times. Bette Davis's vulnerability as the victim will arouse one's sympathy. She portrays such a sympathetic character that the audience cannot wait for her to get justice on the evil characters that try to destroy her. Olivia De Havilland as Cousin Miriam is a flower on the outside, and a hornet's nest on the inside. Her evil is so subtle and yet deadly. Joseph Cotten as her accomplice is eerie. Agnes Moorehead's performance as Velma, Charlotte's maid is so outstanding that she almost upstages Bette and Olivia. The remainder of the cast has the inimitable Mary Astor, Cecil Kellaway and Victor Buono. The bonus on the background of the film will intrigue movie buffs, particularly the rare footage of Joan Crawford, the first choice for Miriam. The DVD transfer is very clear. Recommended Highly.

CHARLOTTE is a great old Southern gothic performed by seasoned actors -- Agnes Moorhead holds her own any day against Davis and deHavilland, and Joseph Cotton, so suave and genteel, is a great villain; still, it's Davis and deHavilland who hold up the story in all its twists. William Faulkner this isn't, but it's still a great old romp in haunted Dixie for a rainy night or a lazy afternoon.
