Die Grasharfe: Directed by Charles Matthau. With Piper Laurie, Sissy Spacek, Walter Matthau, Edward Furlong. Becoming an orphan in 1935, Collin moves to his dad’s cousins Verena and Dolly. Verena is a rich, bossy businesswoman. Dolly, Collin and the maid revolt, moving to a tree house.

“Directed by Walter Mathauu0026#39;s son Walter, this is a superb adaptation of on one of Truman Capoteu0026#39;s best stories about how Southern misfits in the 1930u0026#39;s help each other survive. Both Piper Laurie and Sissy Spacek, as the wealthy Talbo sisters, are perfectly cast and neither has ever been better. Walther Mathau, under his sonu0026#39;s direction, in his most sympathetic roles, plays a retired judge. Every member of the spectacular cast is completely understandable: Jack Lemon and Mary Steenburgen are a pair of hilarious but unrelated con-artists. Nell Carter is the Talbo sisteru0026#39;s very feisty cook, Joe Don Baker is the bumbling sheriff, Charles During the preacher, and Roddy McDowall is the gossipy barber. Look for Doris Roberts (Ray Romanou0026#39;s u0026#39;momu0026#39;) as Mrs. Richards and for the director himself, Charles Mathau, as a barbershop regular.”
