  2. I haven’t thought of the film by in this way, but it certainly gives me chills! And, wow, you really make a point here with your article. Who would have thought that Suddenly, Last Summer and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane were connected like this?
    Cheers!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you liked it. What made me think of it was Peter Shelley’s book Grande Dame Guignol Cinema. He doesn’t deal specifically with this movie, but I think it belongs in that category.

  3. Yup, you sold me. “Suddenly, Last Summer” is creepy at best and horrifying at worst. I agree it’s Grande Dame Guignol with a southern accent and crisp, white gloves.

    I’m not sure I could ever watch this movie again. Aside from that one terrifying event in the film, it’s so SO sad.
