Eureka Entertainment is set to release Robert Aldrich’s dark and brooding psychological thriller, Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte, on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on 21 January 2019.
Originally conceived as an informal follow-up to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, the film stars Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead and Mary Astor, in her final film role.
Charlotte Hollis (Bette Davis) has been closeted in her mansion since the grisly murder of her married lover many years earlier.
When the county wants to tear down the house to build a highway, the spinster’s relatives and friends appear to rally behind her, but each slowly preys on her mind until the gruesome rumours of the last 40 years appear to be coming true.
On hand are cousin Miriam (Olivia de Havilland), Dr. Drew Bayliss (Joseph Cotten), Jewel Mayhew (Mary Astor), and the scariest inhabitant of all, loyal servant Velma (Oscar® nominee Agnes Moorehead).
