Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947)
starring Gene Tierney (Lucy), Rex Harrison (Cpt. Daniel Gregg)
based on The novel by R. A. Dick who was actually Josephine Leslie.
what it’s about Victorian era Lucy takes a house that is haunted by the ghost of an irritable sea captain.
trouble spots It comes off as as long and pointless. I didn’t find Harrison as attractive as the movie clearly meant him to be. The editing is very stagey.
remake tips I suggest a more charismatic couple, perhaps Daniel
Craig and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Also have a faster-moving plot with real events.
I would also like a more conclusive ending - perhaps she finds a living man or perhaps she dies and they join in the afterlife.
