The distance between Frankie's bike and the porch changes in the opening shots of him getting ready to leave for school the first time. This is an illusion caused by the use of telephoto lenses that compress depth (distance from the camera) but not breadth (distance left to right across the scene the camera is viewing). At 05:46 where the bike appears more than 20 feet from the porch, the distance is running across the camera's view, but 06:20 where the bike appears only a few feet from the porch, the distance is running directly away from the camera.

I suppose _Lady in White_ can be viewed as a horror film. It is a supernaturalistic ghost story that relies on mood and suspense to generate its scares, rather than gratuitous and explicit gore. And while some of the special effects seem dated by today's standards, that didn't really detract from my interest in the film. Creative camera work and moody score on a couple of scenes actually gave me chills. I also think that this is a film that fans of good mystery should also find to their liking. Overall, this is a good film from a relatively unknown director, Frank LaLo
