Dominique is a 1978 British film directed by Michael Anderson. The film is based on the 1948 short story What Beckoning Ghost by Harold Lawlor.[2]

The film is also known as Dominique Is Dead (American reissue title and UK video title).


Greedy David Ballard (Cliff Robertson) wants to get the money of his wife Dominique (Jean Simmons), so he attempts to drive her insane. He succeeds and she hangs herself, only to come back to haunt him from the afterlife.



Filming started in September 1977 and went for six weeks.[1]
