About the Movie

Bette Davis and Lillian Gish play two elderly sisters who live together in a Maine summer home, where they are periodically visited by their crusty old handyman, their lively neighbor, and a charming Russian gentleman. Gish, however, is finding it difficult to care for her blind and increasingly senile sister.

Customer Reviews


Amazing movie and it is beautifly done. As Gish plays the blind sister and Betty plays the sister that is moruning her husband that fell afrter the first world war. As their acting was the best for both actresses. Has a lot of hummor and life lessons.

The outdoor sences are lovely filmed. The nighttime moon sence with Vincent price seemed a little staged. The ending of the film was nicley done. As this is the last film for both of the actresses as they died a few years after this was filmed.
