Two thumbs up for Elizabeth Montgomery's performance
20 October 2001 | by catnebSee all my reviews

I believe this movie could have been better in some ways. It should have included more background and greater detail of Blanche Taylor Moore's childhood. It would have helped us to understand more about her motives. After watching the movie on tv, I was intrigued enough to read the book. It helped fill in some of the missing pieces. I watch the movie every time I can catch it on tv, and the reason for that is Elizabeth Montgomery. I think this movie is worth watching just for her performance. She just drips sweetness and southern charm, flirts like it is second nature, and has attitude. I think she probably comes pretty close to capturing the essence of the real Blanche Taylor. You should hear some of the lines she uses on the men...You can really see her as the black widow catching her prey! I've got to say it is priceless when she says "I cannot wait for my head to hit your pillow so I can feel the comfort of your arms." What more can you ask for from a television movie?
