Today's Film: The Haunting (1963)


Here's an interesting combination of trailer and music video (because yes, I can find a connection to The Fall who covered this song, too). I'm looking forward to seeing this fine film with a bunch of students who have never seen it. It's such an effectively spooky movie!

Spooky and stylish and sexy. Well, Claire Bloom is!

Indeed -- those faboo Mary Quant ensembles add the crowning touch.

And I was very pleased that at least one of the students immediately picked up on the coding of her character as lesbian. The knowing chuckles of the audience who gets it -- always good.

Kind of hard to miss. The insanely bad remake baldly states that she's a lesbian, but never quite convinces (the audience of anything).
