A gentle and romantic and an absolutely unscary ghost story to watch for all classic lovers. It plays beautifully with theme of souls meeting across time and the liberating power of mind’s imagination. A young widow with a kid daughter rents a haunted house on cliff top cottage and encounters a ghost of a ship captain who becomes her guide, companion and mentor. She helps him type his memoir and he helps her showing her right direction. I just love the way relationship between Mrs Muir and ghost of Captain Cook. There is so much warmth and richness in the performance and character portrayal. Must say the big reason to watch the film is fine chemistry between heavenly beauty Gene Tierney and robust and gruff Rex Harrison. It has finely written dialogues with that distilled charm of good old days.
