Episode 16: The Children’s Hour (1961)

William Wyler first adapted Lilian Hellman’s play The Children’s Hour to the screen in 1936. The work was heavily censored to meet the standards of the Hollywood production code. In 1961 he produced a remake that restored the lesbian content. My guests had contrasting responses to the film.

This episode includes spoilers. I’m adding a trigger warning as the story includes an act of self harm.
