My 150 Favorite Movies - #44
Two of my favorite actors, Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney, star in this romantic turn-of-the-last-century tale of a widow and a sea-captain's ghost, learning to live and/or haunt, as the case may be, peacably together in a seaside cottage off the English coast. Remade later as a television series starring Hope Lange, this much loved film (7.9 stars on IMDB!), remains a black-and-white classic. Also starring a very young Natalie Wood, and George Sanders, in another of a series of roles he did as a debonair heel. Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
