“Aldrich and Davis retreading the territory charted in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Over the top, of course…but it's efficiently directed, beautifully shot (Joseph Biroc), and contains enough scary sequences amid the brooding, tense atmosphere.”
– Time Out London
“A rutty little bayou potboiler in tradition-of-quality drag…Director Aldrich’s work on Baby Jane was already a study in hysteria, and his style for Charlotte is, if anything, even more ornate."
– Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) finds director Robert Aldrich and star Bette Davis in fine Gothic form, following up on their smash-hit What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). Here Davis plays a mad if wealthy old bat who, rumor has it, brutally murdered her married lover some decades earlier. When her decaying plantation house is threatened with demolition, she calls on a poor cousin (Olivia de Havilland) for help, a decision she soon begins to regret. Also starring Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead, and Mary Astor.
