Haunting, The - The Town Is Really Far Away, Isn't It?
Go about ten minutes into the movie where Eleanor is driving up to Hill House. When she walks up to the gate, look at the background. You can see a village in the background. But doesn't Mrs. Dudley later say that the closest town is 9 miles away?

I think the only slip up here is the housekeepers sense of distance. Sometimes, things appear closer than they actually are too. I can see Boston from my house but it's actually 50 miles away.

I dont remember seeing that village in the movie...maybe cause i've seen it a while back.....but maybe the village didnt have any ppl in it because of the house.....maybe mrs dudley meant nearest town with ppl living in it.

I looked in the movie the last time that I watched it and I did notice something, however I don't think that it is the town. There are some kind of bridges leading up to the house along the road. I don't know if that is what you saw, but that's what I noticed. Maybe you confused one thing with another.

This could have been due to a telephoto lens (i.e. longer than 50 mm)
