100 Discs of Christmas #18 – The Nanny (1965)


Bette Davis was a great actor, and here she is enjoyably creepy as a Nanny who may or may not pose a threat to the little boy she is employed to take care of. He is certainly scared of her, but his parents dismiss his fears of his nanny as nonsense.

This film, released in 1965, was part of a new phase of Davis’s career, after her Oscar nominated turn in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? It was partly financed by the makers of that film, and stands up as one of the most interesting films Davis worked on.

The Nanny (1965), directed by Seth Holt, is released on DVD in the UK by Studio Canal, Certificate 15.
