Product Description

We first see Blanche set fire to her own house; she says "some pervert" must have done it. Next, we see her in session with her psychiatrist. Boy, it would take at least fifty psychiatrists to figure Blanche out. The teleplay by Judith Paige Mitchell, based on a non-fiction book by Jim Schutze, never really makes Blanche's motivations for multiple murders clear. All we know is that she hated her preacher father because he comitted adultrey and left her mother and started a family with another woman. It appears that she decided to kill Raymond Reid (John M. Jackson), her devoted boyfriend of eleven years, simply because she was bored with him. Blanche behaves shrewishly to Raymond and, simultaneously, she behaves like a fragile Southern belle in her attempts to charm and deceive the Reverend Dwight Moore (David Clennon). When Moore tells Blanche he divorced his first wife after having a long extra-marital affair (exactly as Blanche's father had done to her mother), she decides to kill him, too. Blanche obviously forgot the Bible's commandment "Thou Shalt Not Kill." God may forgive people their sins, but Blanche, acting as judge, jury, and executioner, never does Actors: Elizabeth Montgomery, David Clennon and John M.
