What is the title?

    I would like to see a film, which I haven't seen in many years, but cannot remember the title of it.  It is an American film made in the 1940s in black and white.  It is about a young girl who is challenged by the other children to enter an old house, which they believe to be haunted.  It is in fact inhabited by an elderly woman and her daughter.  The girl makes friends with the elderly woman, which makes her grown daughter very jealous, so much so, that she would like to kill her. 

    At home the girl sees a woman in the garden, which if I remember rightly, is the spirit of her mother, although I could be wrong.  It takes place around Christmas, and the woman is often seen standing in the snow or sitting on a swing.

    Does this mean anything to anyone?

    This description reminds me of "The watcher in the woods" but it is not the movie you are talking about..

      Was that the one with Bette Davis?  If so, I like that film too, but it isn't the one I am thinking about.
