Death at Love House (1976)
74 min.
Directed by E. W. Swackhamer.
With Robert Wagner, Kate Jackson, Sylvia Sydney, Bill Macy, Joan Blondell, Dorothy Lamour, John Carradine, Marianne Hill.
Atmospheric, superior TV movie.

As part of their research for a book on famous screen goddess Lorna Love, a pair of writers Donna and Joel Gregory (Jackson, Wagner) temporarily move into the old house belonging to the silent movie legend.

But they discover the whole estate has an otherworldly, possessed vibe to it. The fact that Lorna's actual body is kept in a bizarre glass tomb/shrine on the grounds itself only serves to make matters more odd.

Is there some kind of supernatural force keeping the former owner's spirit alive...or is a dark secret being harbored at the house?

A game cast, including screen veterans Sylvia Sydney, Joan Blondell, and Dorothy Lamour, make Death at Love House quite enjoyable.
