The Battleaxe

Francis Matthews and Jill Ireland star as Tony Evers and Audrey Page, an engaged couple whose pre-marital bliss is shattered by the future bride's domineering mother.

Unable to withstand this wicked witch of the Northlands, Matthews tries to weasel out of the marriage by suing for breach of promise: the broken promise being that mother would stop meddling. Joan Haythorne plays the domineering mother-in-law Mrs Page, who has made it her business to keep the two apart and ensure her daughter doesn't marry such a crooked character.
