The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz • 1947 • United States
Starring Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison, George Sanders

In early-1900s England, independent-minded widow Lucy Muir (Gene Tierney) rents a house by the ocean that she soon discovers is haunted by the ghost of a cantankerous sea captain (Rex Harrison). Gradually, a surprising friendship forms between these two misfit souls—one that eventually blossoms into a love that transcends time and physical reality. Unforgettable performances, atmospheric cinematography, and one of composer Bernard Herrmann’s most haunting scores come together in this sublime romantic fantasy, which blends wry wit with a deeply moving tenderness.
