The Innocents (Movie)
December 25, 1961
The Innocents tells the story of an inexperienced governess, and daughter of a country parson who is hired to care for the niece and nephew of a callous socialite at his country mansion, Bly House, while he continues to reside in London. He stipulates that the whole responsibility for looking after the children is hers. The gothic Bly House proves to have many dark secrets: the governess discovers that her predecessor, Miss Jessel, was having an affair with the valet Quint, and that both of them died in bizarre circumstances. Thereafter, the governess starts seeing their apparitions in the house and grounds and comes to believe that the ghosts of Quint and his lover are attempting to possess the bodies of the children.
