...but can anyone tell me what the title of this movie is?

I only remember bits and pieces of it as I saw it as a small child.  From what I remember there was a girl named Virginia (at that age something like that would stick out at me).  She and her family went to somewhere in the UK and visited a haunted castle or maybe a mansion.  Somewhere along the line, the girl and one of the ghosts may have fallen in love.  I think that near the end they found the ghost's bones inside a wall and they bury them.  The final scene is the girl putting a necklace on the coffin as it was being lowered.

I'm not quite sure I would want to watch it again, but I just remembered seeing something like this and it's driving me crazy that I don't know what the title is.

We have a six-star level?  Huh.  You learn something new every day.

I don't know what the movie is, unfortunately, but I hope someone does.  It sounds interesting.

That actually sounds really familiar; maybe I've seen part of it on tv or something.  Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of it.

Sounds a bit like The Canterville Ghost.

I was about to say "except for the time frame", it being a 1996 production which seemed awfully recent for someone to have seen it as a small child, and then actually looked at Melamphoros's profile and did the math, and realized that depending on your definition of "small child" it could actually apply.

Now, now...just because Mel's 8 years younger than you (and 6 years younger than me) doesn't mean we need to go grab our canes and wheelchairs just yet.

Oh wait...I'm still 2 years younger than you, you old geezer Grin

I did the math too, and I was eight at the time so it sounds about right.

I saw this on DVD in Wal-Mart near Halloween and almost picked it up because of Patrick Stewart...now I kind of regret not picking it up, given that it's based off an Oscar Wilde story.

There's a great old B&W version with Jimmy Stewart, Charles Laughton and Margaret O'Brien. If ya like the old ones.

In fact there's probably a bazillion versions out there.

Dammit, mel I just realised that I am old enough to be your mother.  You know,  like decently out of high school a couple years even. Depending on when your birthday is, I would have been old enough to have a drink to celebrate the fact.  I definitely would not have been a teen.
