Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte
6 years ago via Flixster

As much as I hate to admit it Olivia De Havilland's performance outshines Bette Davis in 3/4 of this movie. The beautiful black and white cinematography is one of the stars of the film. Every room in the Hollis house is shrouded in shadows. Everything is black and white, and frequently people move in and out of the shadows so we're not allowed to determine their true moral characters by the way they are lit. Shadows are not just effects of the movie's light scheme, they ARE it's theme. I've wanted to see this movie for a long time and I wasn't at all disappointed. The acting is superb, the plot is intriguing and full of suspense from beginning to end.
