Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 11/03/1995
"...Worth the wait -- this hive really hops." -- Rating: B+

"...It satisfies expectations by ending in a melodramatic car ride that manages to get it into the Crawford-kitsch pantheon..."

Product Description:

Joan Crawford is at her devious best in this classic 1950's potboiler. She portrays Eva Phillips, a hard-as-nails Southern matriarch uses her imperious nature to control the lives of all who live in her mansion. This includes her husband Avery (Barry Phillips), a wealthy mill owner driven to drink by her insidious ways and blatant infidelities. Things begin to backfire for the queen bee, however, when she learns that Avery's sister Carol (Betsy Palmer) is engaged to Judson Prentiss (John Ireland), a man who also happens to be Eva's secret lover.

Plot Synopsis:

Southern matron Eva Phillips is so cruel and vicious that she succeeds in driving her husband, wealthy mill owner Avery Phillips, to drink. She also manages to ruin the life of her sister-in-law, Carol Lee Phillips, by destroying her upcoming marriage plans to Judson Prentiss. Eva has even alienated her only ally -- her mild-mannered niece, a Yankee who came down South to visit her relative.
But what goes around comes around -- so it's no surprise that those whose lives she ruined take drastic revenge on the Queen Bee.
