Quotes

[last lines, Ruth is in prison for trying to attempt murder]
Ruth Coe: [to her prison guard] I, uh... don't suppose I have a letter from son? He's so loyal - he writes me often. I have a fine baby boy. Well, he's not really a baby anymore, but he'll always be my baby. Do you have children?
[the prison guard looks at her as she waits]
Ruth Coe: No, I've asked you that before. Everyone should have children; it's life's grandest experience, to watch them grow, to become good and fine and strong, someone to look after ...

Elizabeth Montgomery and Dale Midkiff are WONDERFUL
18 September 2006 | by parkrd58See all my reviews

Not one of Elizabeth Montgomery's best films, but she delivers a wonderfully evil performance. Dale Midkiff is also great as the almost pitiful rapist. Both actors have been in better movies, but they still make this one well worth watching. The twisted relationship between mother and son alone makes for an interesting film. The fact that it was based on a true story makes it all the more frightening. I enjoyed it very much. Fans of Liz and Dale won't be disappointed. What lacks in the script is more than compensated by these two gifted performers. Ignore the negative comments here. We miss you Liz! Why are there not more EM films on VHS or DVD. At least this film is available now. Hopefully more to come! Lets get A CASE OF RAPE and LEGEND OF LIZZIE BORDEN on DVD!
