Starring Stella Stevens (of The Poseidon Adventure fame), The Mad Room is a remake of the 1941 film 'Ladies in Retirement.' In perhaps one of her best roles, Stevens plays Ellen Hardy, companion to wealthy widow Mrs. Armstrong (Shelley Winters). Ellen's eccentric ways eventually lead her to inviting her brother and sister to come live with her at Mrs. Armstrong's house. Unfortunately they were just released from an asylum for the brutal murder of their parents many years ago. When Ellen and her siblings reunite, her own psychoses come to the surface. The film chronicles the horror behind mental illness and the devastating effects it can have on family. Released in 1969, The Mad Room was directed by Bernard Girard, whom had achieved success directing episodes of suspense series' like The Alfred Hitchcock Hour and the Twilight Zone. Produced by Columbia Pictures, the film also stars Skip Ward, Carole Cole, Severn Darden, Beverly Garland, Michael Burns, and Barbara Sammeth.
