In-person Q&A with star Patty McCormack, moderated by historian Foster Hirsch
(1956, Mervyn LeRoy) As lightning flashes over a dark lake, it’s time for sweet little Patty McCormack to start picking off the family, plus that nosy handyman Henry Jones. Watch out for those stairs! Pig-tailed Patty proves that even an 11-year-old can be a Grande Dame. Kid-loving French critic François Truffaut hated it. 35mm. Approx. 129 min.
“A steadily mounting panoply of hysterical camp mannerisms.”
– Eric Henderson, Slant
