Here's a KPIX-TV documentary film from 1963, about the life and legend of heiress Sarah L. Winchester, who financed and built between 1884-1922 what came to be known as the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California.
The film is subtitled: 'A legend told by Miss Lillian Gish' and features extended, point-of-view shots taken around the Winchester House, as Gish narrates how Sarah buried her daughter and husband in New Haven, Connecticut and then moved to San Jose in 1884, to begin remodeling what was then an 8 room house.

The house is a gigantic, sprawling 160-room complex designed like a maze, with mile-long hallways, secret passages, dead ends, doors opening to blank walls and staircases leading to the ceiling.
This documentary was written and produced by R.E. Pusey, Jr and Ray Hubbard and directed by Dick Williams.
