Portrait of Jennie (NEWS)

Here’s a perfect fit into our week long look at “weird women.” Sunday December 16th TCM airs an eerie Lewton-esque film favorite of mine called Portrait of Jennie (1948.) This poetic and haunting supernatural classic stars Joseph Cotton as a struggling New York artist in love with a beautiful ghost played by Jennifer Jones. Highly reccomended viewing!

Check TCM for more info and showtimes in your area.

I CAUGHT THE END OF THIS A FEW MONTHS AGO ON TCM AND IT IS A VERY WELL MADE MOVIE. GREAT ATMOSPHERE AND VERY SPOOKY AT TIMES. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT FROM THE BEGINNING NOW......IT'S A MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN DEMI AND SWAYZE IN GHOST THATS FOR SURE!

I love this film too. Jennifer Jones is so beautiful and really turns in a haunting performance.
