19th century ghost saga aided by loads of atmosphere
17 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Predictable ghost story set in a 19th Century English castle haunted by the 300-year-old spectre of Lady Beatrice Mervyn (Patricia Manning), who had murdered her abusive husband and cannot find peace until a young woman uncovers the secret of 'the closed cabinet.' Director Ida Lupino provides plentiful atmosphere, which makes up for the all-too-familiar script, depicting the ancestral curse laid down by the dead man's mother (Doris Lloyd). Heroine Olive Sturgess previously appeared in episode 8, "The Watcher," Jennifer Raine was in "The Poisoner," and David Frankham was making his third out of four appearances. He made only seven feature films in his career, starting with 1959's "Return of the Fly" (and two more with Vincent Price) while among his numerous television roles was the STAR TREK episode "Is There in Truth No Beauty?" Lovely Olive Sturgess would soon portray Vincent Price's daughter in 1963's "The Raven," opposite Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson.
