I had wanted to see this film ever since I read about it in the "Bad Movies We Love" book but the authors made it sound a lot more fun that it is. Cenci (Mia Farrow) mistakes Leonora (Elizabeth Taylor), a middle-aged prostitute, for her recently deceased mother. Leonora, who has lost a child, accepts Cenci's bizarre invitation to move into her mansion, live with her and act as her mother. At first, the two live happily together, but when Cenci's stepfather, Albert (Robert Mitchum), returns to the estate, Cenci's shocking past begins to unravel. Taylor looks fabulous . Robert Mitchum has a very fake looking beard and Mia Farrow is over the top. Joseph Losey made many great films but I have no idea what he had in mind when he made this one . I love how Universal tried to market it as horror film
