Product Description

Amazon.ca

Joseph Mankiewicz's moody classic is less ghost story than romantic fantasy, a handsome 1947 drama of impossible love set on the picturesque turn-of-the-century New England coast. Independent young widow Lucy Muir (the luminous Gene Tierney), desperate to escape her uptight in-laws, falls in love with a grand seaside house and moves in, only to discover the cantankerous ghost of the hot-tempered Captain Gregg (a histrionically flamboyant performance by Rex Harrison). Lucy refuses to let the bombastic captain frighten her away, earning his respect, his friendship, and later his love. They team up to turn the captain's salty memoirs into a bestseller, but as his affection grows he fades away, leaving Lucy free to undertake a more worldly suitor, notably a charismatic children's author (George Sanders at his smarmy smoothest) with his own guarded secret. Charles Lang's melancholy black-and-white photography and Bernard Herrmann's haunting score set the tone for this sublime adult drama, and Tierney delivers one of her most understated performances as the resolute Mrs. Muir. Mankiewicz turns this ghost story into a refreshingly mature and down-to-earth romance. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
The DVD edition of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is worth the price. A beautifully produced film, Ghost is a fine example of the old studio system at its best. The cinematography (Charles Lang), set decoration, and the wonderful score by Bernard Herrmann help make this film shine decades after it was first produced. Gene Tierney, at the height of her popularity and star power turns in an excellent performance as Lucy Muir. Her Lucy is a warm yet vulnerable woman longing for a loving relationship. Little did she know that her soul mate would be a dead sea captain. As strange as the plot sounds, the story works incredibly well. Rex Harrison was never better as the ghost of Captain Gregg and he and Tierney have genuine screen chemistry, it's a shame this is their only film together. The DVD has some interesting commentaries and other extras including production stills showing the cast and crew in casual/candid poses. It also includes a biography of Harrison. Too bad they didn't include one on Tierney, especially considering her importance to the Fox studio during the 1940s. Some minor things that bug film buffs is the changing of the star billing. Tierney was top billed, but on the DVD cover packaging, Rex is top billed. This is supposed to be part of the Fox "Studio Classics" series, so I don't know why they don't keep to the original billing, artwork, and so on. The packaging also says this film was a 1942 Academy Award nominee, which is impossible since the film was released in 1947. The movie and the transfer rate five stars, but the packaging is probably about a 3.5. Would have liked to have seen them do as good a job with Ghost as Fox did with The Day The Earth Stood Still. All in all, this DVD is still worthy of any buff's film collection.

..., imagine my knocked-to-my-feet surprise when I discovered this earlier, period, version of the same romantic charmer!! As another critic so masterfully captioned earlier, the true beauty of GAMM is that its romance is fully realized, courted, and even consummated without its two protagonists ever having physical contact. How *can* they, when one of them is flesh and the other isn't. But they do court- first in genteel, witty, one-upmanship banter between the sexes, then in gradual, verbal revelations of their most private and personal thoughts, all the while realizing that their individual stubborness and fire is exactly what attracts them to one another. (Listen especially to passages like Lucy describing her late husband- but not with much affection, or the Captain first talking about his rite of passage with an older woman.) Every time they speak they truly enjoy each other's company (the conversation on the train is especially fine) and there is an unspoken yearn to take their friendship to the next level. When Lucy finally utters the sad line "what's to become of us," you realize that their relationship can never really materialize. The later epilogue, where an older Lucy tries to remember the Captain for her teenage daughter- and the daughter's revelation that she knew about him too- is at once lovely and bittersweet. Bernard Herrmann's score? No words are adequate.

Format: DVD
This is a gloriously charming romantic comedy/fantasy, that should be shared with everyone.
Gene Tierney gives a tender performance as the widow, Lucy Muir, who decides to leave the home of her stifling, controlling in-laws to make a new life for herself and her young daughter Anna (Natalie Wood). She chooses a seaside cottage, although she is warned not to take it, and when she visits the residence she finds out why she has been cautioned - the place is haunted by a grumpy sea captain, Daniel Gregg (Rex Harrison), who very much wants things his own way. Despite her delicate femininity, Lucy refuses to let Gregg intimidate her, and moves in. Their relationship, at first a bickering one, becomes one of mutual interest and it blossoms as Lucy (whom Gregg christens Luchia) finds that she is bankrupt and can't afford the house, so helps her write a novel based on his seafaring adventures. As they fall in love, it becomes very complicated, as he is a ghost and she is among the living, and when George Sanders' untrustworthy rake comes into Lucy's life, Gregg makes the painful decision to leave and tells Lucy as she slumbers that it was all a dream - she wrote the book, she dreamed him up, although there is regret as he takes one last longing look at her. Lucy resumes her life, having completely forgotten about Daniel, only to discover that her flesh and blood suitor has a wife and children, and Anna Lee shines brightly in her small role of Sanders' long-suffering but understanding wife.
As time passes, Lucy every now and then has a tinge of remembrance, but it's not until her now grown daughter (played by Vanessa Brown) comes home for a visit and talks of a handsome sea captain who engaged her in conversation when she was a little girl . . . . . . . .

Format: DVD
Gene Tierney gives a performance so smooth that you can't believe it. She makes Rex Harrison's performance work, she is balance, determined in a very quiet way she dominates. The commentaries on the score, and the performances are excellent, except for Kenneth Geist, who is thankfully been edited short. Geist who thinks this is a man's picture is critical of Tierney who carries this picture. What a bore this would have been without her. He even suggest that the lovely Claudette Colbert was wanted and needed for the role. Just as we are so lucky that she was unable to do Mankiewicz's ALL ABOUT EVE, we are so lucky to have the subtle Tierney here. She is excellent--I was lucky to see Colbert with Harrison in a romantic comedy in the last year of his life at the National Theater in DC, they were wonderful together, she had to feed him lines to keep it going, but turning this into what the fabulous Claudette did well, suggestive comedy, would not have made this wonderful picture the gem it is. This film is moody and different, and thank God Mankiewicz, a true wonder, and Geist, a man who praises the great George Sanders in one of his most forgettable performances, and knocks Gene who carries this film didn't get their way. No one notes that Tierney was a lover of Jack Kennedy, even though they note that her husband, Oleg Cassini, designed the famous Jackie hats and clothing for Jack's funeral. If you look at Gene you see a resemblance to Jackie in carriage, manner and speech. This is a great film, buy it. By the way there are three other commentary's that are on the money--in fact the best I've heard. The package is impressive.
