The Dunwich Horror (1970) Dr. Henry Armitage, Sandra Dee and another girl who wasn't in the book visit the library of the Miskatonic University where they are studying, and find a mysterious young man named Wilbur Whateley trying to borrow the Necronomicon (to non-HPL fans : a book containing ancient rites to bring alien gods to our planet), and as it is a public library they let him. Sandra Dee offers to drive the moustachioed warlock back to his home in Dunwich, where he drugs her and makes her stay to be a part in his evil ceremonies.

Movie Trivia:
  • Keir Dullea and David Carradine were on the ideas list for the male lead.
  • Peter Fonda turned down the role of Wilbur Whateley.
  • The odd symbol that appears again and again - on Wilbur's ring, on his grandfather's staff, in the design on the main floor, etc. - is actually an ancient Native American symbol commonly termed "Thunderbird in sun".
  • Two sound-stages were used for Sandra Dee's nude scene to prevent "peeping toms." One sound-stage was used to shoot the scene and the other was used to house the cast not needed in the shot.
  • Carol Lynley was on the ideas list for the female lead.
