12/25/1960 The Innocents arrive in time for Christmas

December 25, 1960.  You might think it would be hard to find something mystery-related on Christmas day.  Not a big publishing date.  Ah, but tons of movies are released then.

The Innocents was an adaptation of Henry James' classic novella The Turn of the Screw, about a governess who becomes convinced her two young charges are being tormented by very nasty ghosts. Talk about a war on Christmas, huh?

Deborah Kerr starred.  The flick won the Edgar for best Mystery Motion Picture.
