She Waits (1972)
74 min.
Directed by Delbert Mann.
With Patty Duke, David McCallum, Dorothy McGuire, Lew Ayres, Beulah Bondi, James Callahan.
Minor TV entry about a newlywed couple (McCallum & Duke) who visit a creepy old house once shared by the husband and his first wife.

Despite warnings from the occupant of the house, Duke's mother-in-law, wife number two soon becomes possessed by the evil spirit of the former Mrs.

As usual, Duke turns in a fine performance and an eerie atmosphere is created, particularly by a haunting melody that plays repeatedly.

Hampered somewhat by an uninspired McCallum (of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. fame) who sleepwalks through the entire picture.
