I have searched high and low for this film!

I have spent several pre-Halloween seasons trying to figure out the name of a movie that I watched as a kid.  I always thought the with was played by Cher.  I’m not sure why I thought that- give me a break I was a little kid.  Anyways, I am happy to announce that I have finally discovered the true actress and the name of the movie.  drum roll …..
