Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Lewis Allen. 1944, 99 mins. 35mm.With Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey, Donald Crisp. When a London sister and brother, played by Ruth Hussey and Ray Milland, buy an ominous cliffside mansion for a suspiciously low price, they are plunged into a family’s mysterious, perhaps dangerous legacy. One of the great Hollywood chillers, The Uninvited has attained a rabid cult following over the decades for its singular mix of tragedy, scares, and gothic romance, not to mention Edith Head’s sweeping, ghostly designs and Victor Young’s gorgeous, atmospheric music, including the song “Stella by Starlight,” which would become a standard.
