A Performance To Die For. A Passion To Kill For.
Director Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen) turns up the heat in this steamy, provocative and "expertly executed movie" (Los Angeles Times) starring Beryl Reid and Susannah York. Sexy, "sensitive [and] darkly humorous" (Boxoffice), "The Killing of Sister George is a racy romp that's "entertaining" (Leonard Maltin), "explicit and sensational" (Life).
June (Reid) is the star of a TV soap opera...and she has the ego to prove it. But when she begins to suspect that the network is planning to kill off her character - and that her boss is out to seduce her beautiful young lover (York) - June spirals out of control. And as she's transformed from demanding diva into hair-trigger harridan, TV's grandest of dames proves that underneath it all...she ain't no lady.
