Personal Quote:

[about The Haunting (1963)] I thought [the house] was a wonderful house, just perfect . . . and the way [Robert Wise] shot it was great. He made the house a character . . . It was actually a hotel, before it was a hotel I don't know what it was. But it had its own private ghost!

Trivia:

Mr. Gidding remarried in 1998. He is the father of Joshua Gidding, a writer and college professor in New York. He is a longtime friend of director Robert Wise. See more »
