House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Consumer price index for $10,000.00 to present
This pertains to the $10,000.00 offered to anyone willing to spend the night in the haunted mansion. Most people have stated that $10,000.00 was a great deal of money in 1958 and that is true. If you go along with the consumer price index for 1958; $10,000.00 is equal to $65,600.00 at 2005 prices. I thought I would send this in for the sticklers for detail out there. Also, I would be interested in finding out if anyone might know how many of the on screen characters were still alive? From what I have been able to figure Julie Mitchum was the only surviving one. Also the caretaker and his wife would have had to be in on it with Mrs. Loren and the Psychiatrist because they showed up to scare the young girl and ended up locking everyone in the house before they could decide to leave or not. It's too bad that was not mentioned somewhere in the finished editing.
