DVD & Blu-ray review: The Amazing Mr Blunden (U)

Lionel Jeffries DVD/Blu-ray (98mins)

Two poor, plucky teenagers (Lynne Frederick and Garry Miller) are visited by a mysterious 19th-century lawyer, Mr Blunden (Laurence Naismith), who, straight off the bat, asks the duo if they'd “be afraid to see a ghost”.

They don't seem overly fussed, so they're whisked off to a country cottage where they meet a pair of spirits, two children who died in a fire 100 years before. A creepy tale for children from 1972, which also features Diana Dors.
