"The Killing Kind" (1973). Ann Sothern, John Savage & Cindy Williams.

Curtis Harrington's chilling quirky masterpiece. Similar to "Willard" (not on dvd), with great supporting character parts. Black humor, scary performance by Savage, Cindy William's death sequence is scary.

Trivia: The 1979 movie "The Attic" features Carrie Snodgress and Ray Milland as characters originated in "The Killing Kind."

Ann Sothern, a singer in her early career, she sang with Artie Shaw among others. She was also a published songwriter and recorded two albums.

Her mother was a concert singer who traveled; Ann followed suit studying singing and musical composition. In later years her mother became a diction and vocal coach and taught microphone technique for talking pictures.

She had been so busy in the entertainment industry for so many years, once quipped that she had done everything in the business except rodeo.

Her younger sister was the prolific singer/songwriter Bonnie Lake who wrote several popular standards such as "Sandman", "I've Got Your Number" and "Gracias" - songs later recorded by such big band stars as Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman. In the 1940s, Bonnie founded the Bonnie Lake Music Publishing Company.

Ann was left visibly overweight by a bout of hepatitis, she only wore black outfits in her 1950s sitcoms "Private Secretary" (1953) and "The Ann Sothern Show" (1958)

In her role as Susie McNamara on "Private Secretary" (1953) (which ran 1953-1958), Sothern played the first working woman on an American TV sitcom

She is the mother of look-alike, sound-alike actress Tisha Sterling. The two appeared in The Whales of August (1987), with Tisha, in the prelude scene, portraying a younger-day Ann.

Disturbing opening.

by Anonymousreply 1705/22/2013

Greatest line from the film:

Sexually repressed older woman to young John Savage: "It must be wonderful ..."

Nervous John Savage: "What?"

Sexually repressed older woman: "Being raped ..."

AKA "The Bad Semen"

by Anonymousreply 2005/22/2013

Is this the movie where the blond guy likes to kill pretty women because they are pretty? And he also killed a "pretty" little dog?

At one point, the lodger who is infatuated with him wears a horrid wig and ridiculous make up, because she clumsily attempts to be "pretty" for him.

He doesn't want her to be pretty, so she thinks he accepts her for who she is, but then realises he is mad.

Wasn't one of the muder recorded on audio tape? Is taht it?
