The legend ary stage diva Tallulah Bankhead rarely graced the movie screen as she got older and in this, her last film performance, Bankhead, working for Hamm er studios, uncorked the increasingly murderous, fanatically religious Mr s. Trefoile, who terrorizes her dead son’s former fiancée in a deranged pr oject of justice, religious zealotry, and grief. Local scholar on all thi ngs Tallulah 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.
