Our Mother’s House
Jack Clayton’s 1967 film is a one-of-a-kind gothic-drama about a steely band of children who keep the news of their mother’s death a secret rather than be dispersed to an orphanage. Skirting the edge of horror, the movie is more melancholy and suspenseful than scary with superb performances from Pamela Franklin and Dirk Bogarde as the sinister intruder who threatens their desperate plan. Directed by Jack Clayton (The Innocents and The Pumpkin Eater) and with a screenplay co-written by the beautiful Israeli actress Haya Harareet (Esther in 1959’s Ben-Hur).
