Not So Nice
1 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jo Van Fleet stars as Cissy Hawk, a seemingly kind-hearted woman farmer who has raised a bunch of prize-winning hogs for the annual county fair. She often hires drifters and other desperate men(like costar Bruce Dern) as farm hands, even though some of them at least seem untrustworthy. Still, it is odd how they always seem to disappear suddenly, or the high turnover rate of these workers. One ambitious and scholarly hobo(played by John Carradine) tries to fool Mrs. Hawk, but neither he nor the sheriff know what they are up against... Macabre episode is most off-putting, despite some clever touches. Result is a mildly mean-spirited tale that goes nowhere.
