The Children's Hour -- After opening a girl's school in a small town, two women (Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine) become the victims of a malicious student's comments about their close friendship which leads the children's parents to conclude the two are lovers, with tragic results for all. Directed by William Wyler from Lillian Hellman's adaptation of her own play, the slow-moving picture grows heavy-handed as the town reacts irrationally to the gossip and the conclusion taxes credibility. Discrete implications of a lesbian relationship and a suicide. (A-III) (br) 1962
