November 3, 2017, 3pm.  About Me.  Several times today a male, a YWCA maintenance employee, announced “Man on the floor”.  The annoucement is not always made every time there’s a male on the floor.  Also, earlier, a male, while talking to Gerry next door, said, “Hush!”   I’m trying to find a picture I took recently of an envelope showcased in the mailroom here at YWCA Brooklyn, an envelope addressed to Betty Davis. I have no idea what “thrilling” new tragedy is being plotted for here, YWCA Brooklyn.  This though I do know: it’s going to backfire.  (The wrath of Jehovah God is upon you, Mormon Church of Satan.)  cc all Mormon barristers

Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte Poster.JPG

Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte is a 1964 American psychological thriller film directed and produced by Robert Aldrich,[4] and starring Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead and Mary Astor in her final film role.[5]

The movie was adapted for the screen by Henry Farrell and Lukas Heller, from Farrell’s unpublished short story, “What Ever Happened to Cousin Charlotte?” It received seven Academy Award nominations.

Plot summary

In 1927, young Southern belle Charlotte Hollis (Bette Davis) and her married lover, John Mayhew (Bruce Dern), plan to elope during a party at the Hollis family’s antebellum mansion in Ascension Parish, Louisiana. Charlotte’s father confronts John over the affair and intimidates him with the news that John’s wife, Jewel, visited the day before and revealed the affair. John pretends he no longer loves Charlotte and tells her they must part.

John is then brutally murdered and decapitated in the summerhouse with a cleaver, with one hand severed. Charlotte discovers his body. She returns traumatized to the party in a bloody dress, and most of the guests assume Charlotte is the murderer.

The story jumps to 1964. Charlotte is now a wealthy spinster, still living on the Ascension Parish plantation that has been in her family for generations. Charlotte’s father died the year after Mayhew’s murder, believing his daughter guilty. All these years, Charlotte has believed that her father killed John Mayhew. Everyone else assumes that Charlotte, the crazy recluse, decapitated her lover.

The Louisiana Highway Commission intends to demolish her house and build a new highway through the plantation. Charlotte is vehemently against this and ignores the eviction notice, refusing to leave. She keeps the foreman (George Kennedy), his demolition crew, and the bulldozer away by shooting at them with a rifle. They temporarily give up and leave.

Charlotte is living alone as a virtual recluse in the Hollis mansion, tended by Velma (Agnes Moorehead) her housekeeper. Seeking help in her fight against the Highway Commission, she calls upon Miriam (Olivia de Havilland), a poor cousin who lived with the family as a girl, but who has since moved to New York City and has become wealthy herself. Miriam renews her relationship with Drew Bayliss (Joseph Cotten), a local doctor who jilted her after the murder.

Charlotte’s sanity deteriorates with Miriam’s arrival, her nights haunted by a mysterious harpsichord playing the song Mayhew wrote for her and by the appearance of Mayhew’s disembodied hand and head. Suspecting that Miriam and Drew are after Charlotte’s money, Velma seeks help from Mr. Willis (Cecil Kellaway), an insurance investigator who is still interested in the Mayhew case and has visited Mayhew’s ailing widow, Jewel (Mary Astor).

Miriam fires Velma, who later returns to discover that Charlotte is being drugged. Miriam sees the housekeeper trying to take Charlotte out of the house. The two argue at the top of the stairs. Velma tries to escape, but knowing that Velma has discovered the drugs, Miriam smashes a chair over her head. Velma falls down the stairs to her death.

One night, a drugged Charlotte runs downstairs in the grip of a hallucination, believing John has returned to her. Miriam and Drew decide to trick Charlotte into shooting Drew with a gun loaded with blanks, after which Miriam helps dispose of the “body” in a swamp. Charlotte returns to the house and sees the supposedly dead Drew at the top of the stairs, reducing her to whimpering insanity.

Now believing Charlotte completely mad and secure in her room, Miriam and Drew go into the garden to discuss their plan: to drive Charlotte insane in order to get her money. Miriam also tells Drew that back in 1927 she saw Jewel murder her husband. She’s been using this knowledge to blackmail Jewel for all these years, while plotting to gain possession of Charlotte’s wealth.

Charlotte overhears all. She moves toward a huge stone urn on the ledge of the balcony, almost directly over the lovers’ heads. Miriam embraces Drew, then the two look up and into Charlotte’s knowing eyes. They are paralyzed by the sight as Charlotte tips the stone urn off the ledge, crushing both to death.

The next morning the authorities take Charlotte away, presumably to an insane asylum or possibly to a new home for herself. Many neighbors and locals gather at the Hollis home to watch the proceedings, believing that crazy Charlotte has murdered again. But some are very complimentary and sympathetic towards her. Willis hands her an envelope from the now-dead Jewel Mayhew, who has had a stroke after hearing of the incident the previous night. The note contains Jewel’s confession to the murder of her husband. As the authorities drive Charlotte away, she looks back at her beloved plantation.

Her hair is Harlow gold
Her lips sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
She’ll turn the music on you
You won’t have to think twice
She’s pure as New York snow
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
And she’ll tease you
She’ll unease you
All the better just to please you
She’s precocious
And she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush
She’s got Greta Garbo stand-off sighs
She’s got Bette Davis eyes

She’ll let you take her home
(It whets her appetite)
She’ll lay you on the throne
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
She’ll take a tumble on you
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come up blue
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
She’ll expose you
When she snows you off your feet with the crumbs she throws you
She’s ferocious
And she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she’s a spy
She’s got Bette Davis eyes


And she’ll tease you
She’ll unease you
All the better just to please you
She’s precocious
And she knows just what it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she’s a spy
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
She’ll tease you
She’ll unease you
Just to please you
She’s got Bette Davis eyes
She’ll expose you
When she snows you
She knows you
She’s got Bette Davis eyes…


I love your eyes
