Bombshell on the Box – Gene Alert!

March 14, 2010

THE GHOST AND MRS MUIR, Film4, Mon Mar 15, 5.00pm

Forget Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze – four decades before ‘Ghost’ Gorgeous bombshell Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison played a widow and a ghost. This parkling supernatural period romantic comedy sees Captain Daniel Gregg, a gruff (and very dead) sea salt who haunts widow Lucy Muir who has moved to a seaside cottage to escape meddling in-laws.

She falls in love with him and when she is  short of money, he allows her to publish his memoirs, only to find he has a rival, caddish writer Miles Fairley (George Sanders). Will she choose flesh-and-blood over a spirit?

Gene and Harrison are both immense in this movie and ably directed by  Joseph L Mankiewicz.
