GhostAndMrsMuir 1705

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is a 1947 20th Century Fox film directed by Joseph Manckiewicz, adapted from the 1945 book by R. A. Dick (the pseudonym of Josephine Leslie), and starring Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney. Perhaps most notable for the score, written by Bernard Herrmann.

The Ghost And Mrs. Muir is hard to categorize: part romance, part tragedy, part supernatural, part drama, part comedy. There's loads of room for Alternative Character Interpretation, but the plot is a permutation on a common story: boy meets girl, and they fall in love.

The film was adapted as a Fantastic Comedy TV sitcom in the '60s, shifting the setting to then-contemporary Maine. Edward Mulhare starred as Captain Gregg, with Hope Lange as his mortal love interest (renamed "Carolyn Muir"). Much was made of the comedic hijinks of Captain Gregg's surviving great-nephew, the venal and cowardly Claymore Gregg (Charles Nelson Reilly). Popular character actress Reta Shaw played the part of Martha.
