THE BAD SEED, the magnificently dated camp classic that asks the perennial question -“Is evil nurture or nature?” This spellbinder garnered 4 Academy Award nominations in 1956- including a Best Supporting Actress nom for McCormack as little Rhoda, the eight year old girl that just wants to have fun... and one of the most evil child characters ever to grace the screen. Also nominated Nancy Kelly for Best Actress as Rhoda's tortured mother Christine Penmark, Best Supporting Actress Eileen Heckart as the lush Mrs. Daigle, and Hal Rosson for Best Cinematography.

NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOE BUSINESS
"Give me those shoes back right now!" These immortal words were not uttered recently by some dressing-room drag queen, but way back in 1956 by little Rhoda Penmark in the creepy cult classic film The Bad Seed. Film maestro John Waters once called little Rhoda "a top role model from my deep, dark past." Now this braided blonde-haired, pint-sized epitome of celluloid evil who kills merely for a penmanship medal will soon be tapping her way onto the Castro Theatre stage. Yep, our very own bad seedy Marc Huestis will be honoring Oscar nominee Patty McCormack, little Rhoda herself, with a "basket of kisses" at a truly twisted tribute coming up Sat., Oct. 15. The gala evening of bad taste features an intimate interview with McCormack, as well as performances by local faves Arturo Galster as the little monster's (overacting) mother, Matthew Martin as the boozehound Mrs. Daigle, and special guest stars Marilynn Fowler and Ste Fishell as the mini-murderess Rhoda.
Also on the bill: a twisted stage processional, "The Baddest, Seediest Brats of Hollywood"; the first-ever "Miss Bad Seed" contest judged by none other than Kathy Garver (Cissy from Family Affair); special surprise celebrity guests; and a rare screening of the magnificently dated camp fave The Bad Seed. Seems a perfect way to start the Halloween season!
