Maybe Scaramouche? Before Granger becomes an excellent swordsman ?

 

No, sorry.  The film I'm thinking of was made several years before Scaramouche

 

Here's another hint --  The man's father is ashamed that his son was such a coward.  To preserve the family honor, the father decides to bury his son alive by bricking up the alcove.

Hint - The man dies after being sealed up in the alcove.  Since his father put a curse on him, he must haunt the castle until a member of the family performs an act of bravery while wearing a certain ring.

I think it's About Mrs. Leslie.  I missed this movie when it was shown on TCM.  Fortunately, it will be coming on again next month.

About Mrs. Leslie is the film. Shirley Booth and Robert Ryan. I thought someone would get it on the first clue, figuring some watched the film since it's so rarely shown and was discussed. I purposely didn't reveal too much about the relationship between Booth and Ryan in case a few hadn't seen the film. TCM will be re- airing About Mrs. Leslie in July. Good guess Azure, it's your thread :)
