The Haunting

Robert Wise's 1963 black-and-white 'Scope translation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House was pretty effective when it came out; it may be a little stiff in the joints by now, but it's still a much better scare show than the stinker remake, and clearly aided by Wise's skill as an editor. With Richard Johnson, Claire Bloom, Russ Tamblyn, and Julie Harris.
