Keeper of the Bees Details


Based on an old [[Performer~P218638~Gene Stratton Porter~genestrattonporter]] story, Keeper of the Bees was a shade too bucolic for postwar audiences. [[Performer~P20276~Michael Duane~michaelduane]] stars as an artist who has lost confidence in humanity. He regains it with the help of a faith healer and her two daughters. One of the girls is played by [[Performer~P31821~Gloria Henry~gloriahenry]], later "Alice Mitchell" on Dennis the Menace. One of the earliest directorial efforts of [[Performer~P113143~John Sturges~johnsturges]], Keeper of the Bees was previously filmed by Monogram in 1935, with [[Performer~P29979~Neil Hamilton~neilhamilton]] in [[Performer~P20276~Duane~michaelduane]]'s role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
