What's the Matter with Helen? (1971)

I'm trying to watch What's the Matter With Helen (1971) - all I can see is singing and dancing. I'm not being psychologically thrilled. It's kinda like the tv mystery movies of the time - Columbo; McMillan & Wife; etc.

 

The color is great.. beautiful to look at. The only odd thing I noticed was the tinge of color in the opening newsreels. Were any of those Hearst Metrotone newsreels from the 1930s in color?

-----------------------------------

To be fair, I stuck with this one all the way to the end, which I actually liked - the last 20 minutes or so. Once all of the scenes showcasing Ms. Reynolds' dancing skills were out of the way, I was able to see a movie there.. and the thriller part of it's description began to bloom. Ms. Winters was very attractive, as was Ms. Reynolds.

Yes, the ending was very freaky.

Shelley Winters playing the piano as there is a cut to  . . . .(Yikes!).

 This one really got me when I was real young.  Especially the freaky ending - Shelley was pretty scary and the film stayed with me for a long time.  A good Halloween scary film!
