Our Mother's House (9-Oct-1967)

Director: Jack Clayton

Writers: Jeremy Brooks; Haya Harareet

From novel: Our Mother's House by Julian Gloag

Keywords: Drama

When their pious but bedridden mother dies, the seven underage Hook children, fearing orphanage and separation, continue the charade that she is still alive. They survive for a time by cashing her pension checks, but then their father Charlie turns up. Unusual film, probably too dark for young children. Dirk Bogarde gives a brilliant and powerful performance.
