The Changeling
Murdered by his father 70 years ago, the outraged spirit of a small boy makes it known through his haunting of Scott, a lonely composer, that his real grudge is not against the killer but The Changeling (now an elderly senator), who took his place and inherited his fortune. In an atmosphere that resembles the electrocardiogram of a corpse, the administration of shocks (murderous wheelchairs, mysterious bangings and firebolts) becomes risible rather than disturbing. And the leaps made by Scott's agile mind in identifying both victim and usurper leave logic and credence on the starting block.
