Haunted Houses: The Haunting (1963)

I just love this shot! Close to perfect.

Like The Legend of Hell House a well known building was used here in the out-door shoots.  Though set in the U.S., the film was shot in the UK and the building in question is Ettington Park (not a hotel!!). All of the exteriors were filmed on the grounds of this estate in Warwickshire and the cast stayed there while filming.  A couple of cast members, especially Claire Bloom, didn't like staying there and reported feeling very uncomfortable and wished to lodge elsewhere.
