The House on the Cliff is rumored to be the last stop of the Civil War Underground Railroad and overlooks one of the Great Lakes. Years ago, an excursion boat sank in a storm and it's said the lake is haunted. The house's occupants include a young, lovely heiress, Ellen Clayton, currently confined to a wheelchair; her coolly beautiful stepmother; and an austere housekeeper. Then Nurse Pepper arrives, a cheerful, curious person desirous of putting things in order. And there's the substitute doctor, Corey Phillips who believes Ellen can walk again and soon. It all begins with a sudden, violent murder and ends with a chilling, surprising climax. Excellent parts for the entire cast.
