What could possibly go wrong when Debbie Reynolds and Shelley Winters flee to Hollywood after their sons’ murder convictions and start a dance-and-showbiz school for aspiring Shirley Temples?

Harrington’s personal favorite, set in the 1930s, this beautifully mounted film watches as hot-hoofin’ Reynolds ropes a Texan suitor to the deep dismay of her possessive roomie. Winters’s scared-and-scary nervous nellie is driven frantic by Reynolds’s independence, fire-and-brimstone sermons on the radio (care of Agnes Moorehead), her preciousest bunnies and pretty much any sudden noise or movement. Featuring a grand kiddie Hollywood revue with an uncanny mini-Mae West, mellifluous Micheál MacLiammóir as an elocution coach, Timothy Carey as an unsavory caller and a score by storied Harrington collaborator David Raksin. Academy Award Nominee for Best Costume Design (Morton Haack).

Director: Curtis Harrington. 101 min. 1971. 35mm.

Part of the series Overdue: Curtis Harrington, programmed by Nick Pinkerton and Nicolas Rapold.

Tickets: $12, Film Club Member: $8.
