Hollywood legend Bette Davis gets the royal treatment with this special centenary collection featuring a new edition of the classic ALL ABOUT EVE.
THE NANNY: A troubled boy accused of drowning his little sister in a bathtub is institutionalized, though he claims the family's old, trusted nanny is the killer. When he returns he is once again a suspect after his aunt dies and his mother is poisoned. Based on Evelyn Piper's novel, this stylish British mystery features Davis' menace at its peak.
VIRGIN QUEEN: The new world is waiting to be conquered and Sir Walter Raleigh is just the man to do it. Though Raleigh only has designs on the treasures to be had, the queen has romantic designs on him despite his being married.
PHONE CALL FROM A STRANGER: A recently separated man becomes confidant to a number of passengers flying to Los Angeles. When the plane crashes and leaves him the lone survivor, he makes it his mission to visit the families of those whose lives he touched en route.
HUSH... HUSH SWEET CHARLOTTE: Living a life of seclusion, a suspected murderess is forced to face public scorn and must defend her sanity when nearby construction threatens her home.
ALL ABOUT EVE: Given that she throws tantrums, gets intoxicated, and pushes people away when she needs them the most, it's a wonder New York theater star Margo Channing (Davis) has any true friends. But when Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter), Margo's young and innocent-seeming protégée, schemes to gain both the affection of Margo's friends and a starring role originally written for Margo, the actress discovers just who is in her corner--and who is not. Released in 1950, ALL ABOUT EVE's power radiates undimmed through the years.
