A Place Of One's Own: Terrible Movies #143
A miscast James Mason wearing WTF facial hair moves his wife and her scenery-chewing companion into a house left abandoned for 40 years and odd stuff supposedly happens between overly mannered and stuffy garden parties but what happens isn't that odd and doesn't happen very often. What could have been a very good "old dark house" ghost story would have benefited from at least one old dark house and one ghost. Not bad if you like boring period love stories where someone meets someone else and swoons at first sight and everyone stands around in tuxedos and talks and talks and talks, but haven't you seen enough of those? I watched it on Netflix Instant Streaming. Here's a trailer:
Oh my. That wasn't the trailer at all. That seems to be the fish-slapping dance from Monty Python. My mistake.
Well, there doesn't seem to be a trailer, so just watch that instead. Sorry for the confusion.
