Barbara Stanwyck made her TV movie debut in 1970's The House That Would Not Die. The setting is an old house in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Stanwyck moves after inheriting the house, but has cause to rethink her decision. Built during the Revolutionary era, the house is said to be haunted by the spirits of its original inhabitants--who are disinclined towards hospitality. House That Would Not Die was based on a novel by Barbara Michaels (one of several pseudonyms for author Barbara G. Mertz).
