The Ghost and Mrs Muir

One of my all time favorite, spirited, classic movies is 
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, 1947. 

The story is funny, insightful, and romantic. 
Breathtaking B&W cinematography combined with a clever script makes this a must see! 
Here's a link to the movie . Only click on the arrow directly on the movie image! The other links and downloads are adds or require you to register with the site.

Screen play- Philip Dunne (based on a novel by R.A. Dick) Director- Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
In the movie, set turn of the century, a beautiful widow (Lucy Muir played by Gene Tierney), determined to live on her own, moves to Gull Cottage along the English seacoast. The house is known to be haunted by a ghost (Captain Gregg played by Rex Harrison.) 
Charmed by the cottage, Mrs. Muir, daughter Anna, and Martha (her maid) move in anyway.  I don't want to give away too much if you haven't seen it already. So, put this one in your streaming Que!

Visit my post vintage bathing suit to see my family's heirloom swim suit, similar to the one Lucy wore in the movie.
According to HookedonHouses  the movie was filmed entirely in California. Stop over to her blog for more scene photos and story details. 
I'm linking to these lovely parties.

  7. I love your site and all the goodies you find!! When do you sleep? If you go to youtube and listen to the Ghost and Mrs Muir Soundtrack on a rainy day, it is just magical. We live on a lake and when the wind is up and the rain is coming down this is the perfect background .
