The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Play Trailer

The widowed Mrs. Muir (Gene Tierney) moves into a haunted sea-side cottage and soon meets the resident ghost: an eternally grumpy sea captain (Rex Harrison) whose vulgarity is matched only by his charm. Sparks fly and wits collide as the unlikely housemates bicker their way towards a transcendental romance, which gets complicated when Mrs. Muir catches the eye of a suave (and very much alive) suitor. Packed with delightful one-liners and charismatic banter, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir offers a surprisingly nuanced exploration of a wholly unique love triangle.
