Details

This is the tale of a wealthy southern spinster Charlotte Hollis (Bette Davis) who lives with her eccentric maid (Agnes Moorehead) in a decaying southern mansion, shunned by the townsfolk after the mysterious axe-murder of her late lover. When her jealous cousin (Olivia de Havilland) and her cousin's wily husband (Cotton) arrive for a visit, the two conspire to drive Charlotte insane and have her committed so the two can sell off her estate and pocket the proceeds. Bette Davis is an elderly Southern recluse slowly being driven mad. Fearing that her home may soon be demolished to make way for a new road, and at the same time exposing an ancient murder, her relatives start to gang up on her. What do they want? And why are they trying to convince her that she's mad?
