Robert Aldrich – The Killing of Sister George (1968)

Legendary director Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen, The Grissom Gang) turns up the heat in this steamy, provocative and expertly executed movie starring Beryl Reid (Trial and Error) and Susannah York (The Maids, Gold). Sexy, sensitive and darkly humorous, The Killing of Sister George is a racy romp that’s entertaining, explicit and sensational. June (Reid) is the star of a TV soap opera… and she has the ego to prove it. But when she begins to suspect that the network is planning to kill off her character—and that her boss is out to seduce her beautiful young lover (York)—June spirals out of control. And as she’s transformed from demanding diva into hair-trigger harridan, TV’s grandest of dames proves that underneath it all… she ain’t no lady. Coral Browne (The Ruling Class) and Patricia Medina (Sangaree) co-stars in this classic drama with a dark sense of humor.
