Mrs.Winchester's House 1963

"KPIX-TV documentary film from 1963, about the life and legend of heiress Sarah L. Winchester, who financed and built what came to be known as the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California, between 1884-1922. The film is subtitled: 'A legend told by Miss Lillian Gish' and features extended, point-of-view shots taken around the Winchester House, as Gish narrates how Sarah buried her daughter and husband in New Haven, Connecticut and then moved to San Jose in 1884, to begin remodeling what was then an 8 room house. Gish describes how the house eventually grew to accommodate over 150 rooms and reflects on Sarah's eccentricity and how it may have influenced local rumors that she was providing shelter for the ghosts of people killed by Winchester rifles (the family business). This documentary was written and produced by R.E. Pusey, Jr and Ray Hubbard and directed by Dick Williams." ~BayArea Television Archive
