The legendary great Bette Davis (All About Eve) goes the television movie route in Scream, Pretty Peggy, a 1973 made-for-TV fright flick.

College student and aspiring artist Peggy (Sian Barbara Allen, Billy Two Hats) takes a housekeeping job at a mansion where sculptor Jeffrey (Ted Bessell, TV’s That Girl) lives with his elderly mother (the diabolical Ms. Davis). Things get strange when Peggy discovers a third resident: Jeffrey’s hopelessly insane sister. Horror maven Gordon Hessler (The Oblong Box, Scream and Scream Again) directed this one, co-written by Jimmy Sangster (Horror of Dracula) and co-starring Charles Drake (Back Street) and Allan Arbus (TV’s M*A*S*H).

Not a classic, of course, but still a fun one!
