William Castle's B/W thriller ( 1964 )with Barbara Stanwick and Robert Taylor .. Is this available on TCM ?? I see it is not available on DVD,, but there a lot of great films not available that get run regularly on TCM . I thought there was a box I could check that would alert me when this title is to be run during the week, so I won't miss it. For those of you who are familiar with this Gothic style horror film,, Castle did wonders with the Music, the Angles of the camera lens and the Black and White composition of this little 86 minute gem of a film. The music of this film gives me the creeps whenever I think of the melody. And the angle of the Dutch framing ( on an angle ) makes the horror that much better.
