Michael Johnston in person
(Silvio Narrizano, UK, 97min., 35mm on DVD, 1965)
The legendary stage diva Tallulah Bankhead rarely graced the movie screen as she got olde r and in this, her last film performance, Bankhead, working for Hammer st udios, uncorked the increasingly murderous, fanatically religious Mrs. Tre foile, who terrorizes her dead son’s former fiancée in a deranged project o f justice, religious zealotry, and grief. Local scholar on all things Tall ulah and keen social observer Michael Johnston (Cordially Yours) will be on hand to introduce the film and share holdings from his own collection of Tallulahery.
