    • Released: 1963
    • Directed by: Robert Wise
    Trapped within the eerie confines of Hill House, Eleanor Vance (Julie Harris) is a participant in a paranormal investigation led by Dr. John Markway (Richard Johnson). The supernatural thriller The Haunting, directed by Robert Wise, weaves a tale of psychological terror as Eleanor finds herself increasingly drawn to the mansion's mysterious past and its deceased inhabitants. As the investigation unfolds, so does the house's chilling grip on Eleanor's psyche, escalating towards an unnerving climax. Notably, Claire Bloom portrays Theodora, a character significant for her implied homosexuality - a bold move for cinema in 1963.

    The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad is a delightful fusion of two classic tales. The first half, narrated by Basil Rathbone, follows the mischievous Mr. Toad (Eric Blore) - an aristocratic amphibian with an insatiable desire for motor cars. His reckless obsession lands him in a series of comedic predicaments. Transitioning into the second tale, Bing Crosby lends his voice to tell the story of lanky schoolmaster Ichabod Crane (Bing Crosby). In this part, Crane's pursuit of the town beauty Katrina Van Tassel (Candy Candido), leads him to a fateful encounter with the infamous Headless Horseman. This 1949 animated feature from Walt Disney Productions brings together humor, adventure, and a hint of horror, making it a charming entertainment for all ages.
