Our Mother’s House (MGM 1967, Dirk Bogarde, Pamela Franklin)



In dark drama Our Mother’s House a group of seven kids decide to cover up their mother’s death (for fear of being split up and sent to a home), matters are complicated by the return of their neer-do-well father (played by Dirk Bogarde who again was trying his hardest to kill off his heartthrob of the fifties tag.)

Leslie Halliwell was not impressed calling it an ‘unpleasant and rather boring melodrama, too silly to have much dramatic impact.’
