The Baby ★★ 1972 (PG)

Bizarre story of a social worker who resorts to swinging an ax to cut the apron strings of “baby,” a retarded man-child, from his over-protective and insane (bad combination) mother and sisters. Low-budget production looks and feels like a low-budget production, but any movie featuring a grown man wandering about in diapers can't be all bad. 85m/C VHS, DVD . Anjanette Comer, Ruth Roman, Marianna Hill, Suzanne Zenor, David Manzy, Michael Pataki, Erin O'Reilly, Virginia Vincent; D: Ted Post; W: Abe Polsky; C: Michael D. Margulies; M: Gerald Fried.
