The Uninvited ★★★★½

A delicate young woman (Gail Russell ) is threatened by a lowering ghost, seemingly her own mother. A sympathetic author (Ray Milland) and his sister (Ruth Hussey) help Russell discover the truth about her parentage.

A well written and nicely acted combination of ghost story and mystery. Cornelia Otis Skinner has a showy part as a strangely protective old friend of the deceased woman.
