Trivia Winchester

The promotional image for the film of Helen Mirren sitting in the carriage in mourning clothes mirrors the only known photograph of the reclusive Sarah Winchester on the estate, which is seen on the tour of the mansion in San Jose. Sarah Winchester constantly built, and rebuilt the house for 38 years, believing if she stopped, the spirits of those killed by Winchester rifles would kill her. The Winchester house has windows and doors in the floor, doors that open into walls or nothing, and stairs to nothing or into the ceiling. She was obsessed with the number 13. Very little of the filming took placed in the actual mansion. The mansion's design in reality is extremely cramped, making filming very difficult. As such, most of the mansion's interior needed to be recreated on sound stages.
