The Ghost and Mrs Muir

Recent widow Lucy Muir (Gene Tierney) rents a house by the ocean, which turns out to be haunted by a cantakerous sea captain (Rex Harrison). Although difficult at first, their friendship blossoms and the captain even "ghost writes" an autobiographical book to bring in money for her. Eventually, the unlikely pair fall in love, only to be challenged when a flesh-and-blood suitor (George Sanders) appears on the scene. With its heartwarming screenplay and Oscar-nominated cinematography, this is a witty and moving classic in Hollywood's best style.
