This month’s movie is Cast a Dark Shadow. Teddy Bare murders his wealthy, older wife, Monica, to gain her fortune. But his timing is off and her will does not name him as sole beneficiary. Monica’s sister is set to inherit, but lives in Jamaica, far from Teddy’s clutches.
Teddy then marries wealthy Freda, who is shrewd and who keeps Teddy in check. Soon after, Charlotte arrives in town. Will Teddy be able to separate her from her money? Cooper didn’t care much for Teddy and was glad he got the ending he deserved. Her favorite characters in the movie were the budgies (one is named Simon) who appear in a scene with Monica’s maid. The budgies stole the show – Cooper thinks they should have been in every scene.
