Silver Screen

The Haunting is hailed as one of the great thrillers in cinema history, and it was shown earlier this week on TMC.

It is stylishly directed by Robert Wise in the manner of Orson Welles, but on this re-viewing I found myself growing weary long before the credits rolled.  This was caused in large part by Julie Harris' incredibly annoying performance. 

In fact, I'm hard-pressed to name a film in which she isn't incredibly annoying.
