Question
Hi,
   I saw a movie many years ago and have never seen it again. All I can remember is it is black and white, a little girl can see her mothers ghost and no one believes her. Her father gets angry at her and she slips out at night in the snow....i can't remember what else happens. If you know the name of this movie, you will make my whole day!

Thanks,
Tina

Answer
Hello Tina,

Thanks for your question.  I believe I know the film you're looking for.  Though there have been several films which a young girl sees her mother's ghost ( for example, 1946's "Sentimental Journey") ,..your brief description seems pretty close to the story-line of the 1944 RKO film, "The Curse of The Cat People", which was supposed to be a sequel to the popular, "The Cat People".  It starred Simone Simon and Kent Smith,...and you can read info on it at :  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Curse_of_the_Cat_People ,......and also at: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/2544/The-Curse-of-the-Cat-People/  (click on :  'Read The Full Synopsis'  )
It's available on DVD at Amazon.com.  ( It may also be available at your local Public Library.)

Sincerely,
Jim K.
