Synopsis
This television remake of the 1954 Broadway stage hit and subsequent film two years later of Maxwell Anderson's play adapted from William March's tidy little horror novel (both starred Nancy Kelly as the horrified mother and Patty McCormack as the precious young daughter she discovers to be a murderer) emerged an equally frightening contemporary thriller. Blair Brown and nine-year-old Carrie Wells assumed the starring roles, Richard Kiley (in a sex-switched part) had the role taken in both the play and earlier film by Eileen Heckart as the parent of the schoolmate drowned by the "angelic" young girl, and David Carradine (in the old Henry Jones role) is the local dimwit handyman unlucky enough to see through the youngster's sunny disposition. Cinematographer Ted Voightlander won an Emmy Award nomination for his contribution.
