Review

Our Score
And wouldn't her family like to know? Produced by Robert Aldrich, who directed Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in the classic gothic drama What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, this scary story isn't quite in the same class. Ruth Gordon poses as a housekeeper to Geraldine Page, who's got into the unpleasant habit of disposing of her domestic help. Director Lee H Katzin contrives a baleful bitches' brew of women at war with each other, and he maintains the suspense with considerable skill right up to the nail-biting conclusion.

Summary

An impoverished widow hatches an evil scheme to kill off a succession of unfortunate housekeepers and use their life savings to keep herself solvent. Drama, starring Geraldine Page, Ruth Gordon, Rosemary Forsyth and Robert Fuller.
