Quite good but way too short
10 June 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Dark Morning" is an installment of "The DuPont Show with June Allyson". Allyson herself has nothing to do with the show apart from a very perfunctory introduction. Otherwise, it's a nice little show starring Bette Davis and Leif Erickson.

When the show begins, Sarah (Davis) is bringing her niece to live with her. But this is no ordinary child. It seems that Whitney's parents were murdered and the press blamed young Whitney...and without any evidence of another perpetrator, the town is quick to assume she's a child psychopath and folks seem to do everything they can to make the child feel unwelcome. What's to come of this?

The finale to this one is satisfying and the show itself quite nice. But there is a problem that the folks who made it couldn't tackle...the 30 minute time slot which is way too short for this story. If given more time to unfold more naturally, the score would have no doubt been higher.
