Elizabeth Montgomery stars as Blanche Taylor Moore, grandmother, churchgoing pillar of her North Carolina small town--and serial murderer--in this riveting true story that leads to the gas chamber

Elizabeth Montgomery played this role to perfection, but my review isn't geared towards the film, which as you can see is 5 stars without a doubt.This review is to make sure people who buy these titles, especially those who buy during an Archive sale and buy in bulk, inspect your dvds upon arrival and don't wait to watch them, if you don't want to watch them right away, at least test them , because there ARE problems on the occasional discs.There doesn't seem to be any sort of quality control for the people they pay to make these dvds for Warners Archive, i just got 4 dvds in the mail and if they weren't scratched they had fingerprints all over them! Since they use consumer brand purple disc dvd, they cannot withstand as much wear and tear and the normal silver dvds used by professional companies, so a few scratches and fingerprints CAN make a difference in how the dvd plays, i guess my main focus in this review is to check out the dvds, because there is nothing worse than sitting down to enjoy a movie and having it freeze in the middle , like what happened to me a few months back with an Archive title i purchased.

Following her tour-de-force performance in "The Legend Of Lizzie Borden" (1975), Elizabeth Montgomery seemed to specialize in playing evil ladies in TV movies. As Blanche Taylor Moore, the subject of this 1993 true-crime TV movie, Montgomery skillfully combines the charms of her character Samantha from the TV Sitcom "Bewitched" (1964-1972) with the murderous intentions of Lizzie Borden. But Blanche, a preacher's daughter with a God complex and sociopathic personality, makes axe-murderess Lizzie Borden look like a saint.
We first see Blanche set fire to her own house; she says "some pervert" must have done it. Next, we see her in session with her psychiatrist. Boy, it would take at least fifty psychiatrists to figure Blanche out. The teleplay by Judith Paige Mitchell, based on a non-fiction book by Jim Schutze, never really makes Blanche's motivations for multiple murders clear. All we know is that she hated her preacher father because he comitted adultrey and left her mother and started a family with another woman. It appears that she decided to kill Raymond Reid (John M. Jackson), her devoted boyfriend of eleven years, simply because she was bored with him. Blanche behaves shrewishly to Raymond and, simultaneously, she behaves like a fragile Southern belle in her attempts to charm and deceive the Reverend Dwight Moore (David Clennon). When Moore tells Blanche he divorced his first wife after having a long extra-marital affair (exactly as Blanche's father had done to her mother), she decides to kill him, too. Blanche obviously forgot the Bible's commandment "Thou Shalt Not Kill." God may forgive people their sins, but Blanche, acting as judge, jury, and executioner, never does.

Elizabeth Montgomery is mesmerizing as Blanche Taylor Moore. If you're a fan of hers then I highly recommend. But if you only like her in roles like Samantha from Bewitched, then you'll probably dislike this. This is based on a true story. You do feel bad though for this character because with seeing flashbacks of her childhood you get to understand why she dislikes men in general. I won't give away the plotline.

I really enjoyed this movie and think that Elizabeth Montgomery did an outstanding job. Anxiously awaiting for Lizzie Borden to be released. I watched it on television many years ago and can't understand why it's taken so long to come out on DVD. Elizabeth Montgomery was a wonderful actress and apparently could go from comedy to creepy and be believable.

One of Elizabeth Montgomery's best movies. A real character study into the mind of a mad woman. (Mad at men, ha!) To think the main character is still alive is scary.
