The Taylor’s house: PETER say that the property was derelict at the time of filming, and was “Full of cobwebs, spiders and other creepy-crawlies”. PETER
At the door of the house: “While we were filming the scene where the house burns down, Janet (Blair) received a call from her husband in Hollywood. Her own home was burning!” PETER
