Linnaisten Vihreä Kamari from 1945 is an old fashioned ghost story directed by Valentin Vaala.The movie is based on the story by Zacharias Topelius from 1859.I have read it and this movie version works quite fine.Regina Linnanheimo is wonderful in her part as Anna Littow.And so is Kaija Rahola as her sister Ringa.Rauli Tuomi is brilliant as Kaarle Lithau.Paavo Jännes does steady job as Jaakko von Littow.Eine Laine is great as Mrs. Winterloo.And so is Reino Valkama as Eisebius Winterloo.Arvo Lehesmaa plays Ltn. Weder.Horror isn't a genre that has been done too often in Finland.This may not be all that scary to the modern viewers but the atmosphere is right there.
