Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte
- 2 hr 13 min
Charlotte Hollis is a rich elderly woman who has lived like a recluse in the crumbling family plantation mansion in Hollisport, Louisiana. She has been living there ever since her father Sam Hollis' death, which was thirty-six years ago. The only people who visit her are her housekeeper, Velma Crowther, and her longtime friend and physician, Dr. Drew Bayliss. She has lived in this house most of her life. She did live in London for a short time thirty-seven years ago. She moved away after the vicious murder of her married lover, John Mayhew. He was killed at the plantation's summer house while Sam was hosting one of his famous grand balls. Charlotte and John had made a plan to run off together that night. Instead John was brutally murdered. The murderer was never caught. Most people believe Charlotte did it because John changed his mind about running off with her.
