The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is the beloved 1947 fantasy drama from famed director Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Lucy Muir (Gene Tierney) is a widow who buys a seaside property, not least so she can get away from the two busybody in-laws she's been living with since her husband's death. The nicer she tries to be to them; the more horrible they act toward her. She buys the house even though it is quite obviously haunted by the previous owner, a sea captain named Daniel Gregg (Rex Harrison). They both speak bluntly to women and with a great deal of common sense. Miles Fairley (George Sanders) is a children's book author who proposes to Lucy but neglects to mention that he's already married. When Lucy runs out of money and is in danger of losing the house, the captain suggests he dictate his life story to her which he is certain will be published as a book; she can claim authorship and live off the royalties, which is precisely what happens. But then she meets Fairley and when it appears the two will be married, Captain Gregg graciously steps out of the picture and using his ghostly abilities, removes himself from Lucy's memory so that in the future, their conversations will seem to be only dreams.moreless
