    I enjoy films based on true crimes, and this is no exception. It amazes me what human beings are capable of doing to one another. I have seen this film many times and wanted to add it to my true crime collection of films.

      Comments about Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story:

      The movie is fantastic, great acting by all, enjoyed watching the townspeople as extras, look for the rubberneckers especially in the scene where Elizabeth's character is walking down the town's main street area, one lady in the dressing window was a hoot!:)

            Comments about Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story:

            I had no idea that Elizabeth Montgomery made so many TV Films. I had only seen two of them but
            she made 22 films after "Bewitched" went off the air. She was a really great dramatic actress and "The Black Widow Murders" is evidence of it. This is based on a true story and it is far above average as far as TV Films go. It draws the viewer into the story and mind of Blanche Taylor Moore. I highly rate this film as one of Elizabeth Montgomery's best films. She gives a great performance and the script and production are top-notch. I couldn't get the film out of my mind after watching it. That is sign of a good film! I hope The Warner Archive Collection will release more of her films. I have bought all that they have of Elizabeth Montgomery's films and they are all excellent prints.

              I didn't see many of Elizabeth Montgomery's TV films but she was a great dramatic actress. This is a very good film. Based on a true story, it is excellent. The copy is pristine and I do hope more of Elizabeth Montgomery's films are released because she did a lot of excellent TV films. I have bought all of her films from The Warner Archive Collection starring Elizabeth Montgomery. I would love to see more.

                Comments about Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story:

                A very well made and sharply scripted TV movie, THE BLACK WIDOW MURDERS hinges upon the unhinged Blanche, portrayed beautifully by Elizabeth Montgomery. She remains oddly sympathetic throughout much of the blackly comic proceedings, and chilling when her Christian gal persona drops and leaves a dead-eyed murderess behind. The filmmaking here is at its best in the last half-hour when the writing and directing wittily turns the suspicions of the two detectives investigating Blanche into the reality of exhuming the bodies of her various victims ("How did her father die?). This is a stellar example of a genre that seems peculiarly suited for TV movies.
