"THE SPIRIT... so willing! THE FLESH... so weak! THE ROMANCE... so wonderful!"


  • Director: Joseph L Mankiewicz
  • Genre: Romance, Classics, Science Fiction & Fantasy,
  • Studio: 20th Century Fox
  • Subtitled | Black & White | Duration: 120 Mins

Ethereally beautiful Gene Tierney finds herself beguiled by the ghost of bewhiskered sea captain Rex Harrison when she moves into his former home in this wonderful romantic fantasy. A marvellously lyrical Bernard Herrmann score helps underline the poignancy of the enchanting tale, and Philip Dunne's literate screenplay avoids all the pitfalls normally associated with such delicate material. The movie is also enhanced by a particularly well-chosen cast, that includes George Sanders as Tierney's would-be suitor and Natalie Wood as Tierney's young daughter, Anna (Vanessa Brown portrays her in later years). Today the settings and pace may look studio-bound, but they suit the theatricality of the subject, and there's no question that this superb original is far better than its spin-off TV series.
