“The woman in LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN deliberately kills her own un-born child, drowns the crippled brother of her husband and endeavours to send her adopted sister to the electric chair.
And yet,despite all this, there are certain things about her that you rather like.”

( from FORTIES FILM TALK by Doug McCLelland )

  1. I’m finding it hard to find anything likeable about Ellen. She’s manipulative, uncaring, selfish and mentally deranged. Perfect of course for a great movie.
    I agree it’s Tierney’s best role.
