The Uninvited (1944)
Based on the novel Uneasy Freehold by Dorothy Macardle. A brother and sister purchase a surprisingly affordable, beautiful old house dramatically perched on a cliff overlooking the Cornish coast. As they discover some of the house's peculiarities - the unexplained chill that settles in certain rooms, flowers that wilt when brought inside - they are told by a local girl that the house is haunted by her mother.
Starring Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey, Gail Russell and Donald Crisp. Directed by Lewis Allen.
