Set in the early twentieth-century, this much-loved fantasy-romance finds the widowed Mrs Lucy Muir (Gene Tierney) moving to a seaside cottage purportedly haunted by the ghost of an old sea captain (Rex Harrison), who is said to have killed himself in the house. After meeting the ghost and learning more of his story, Lucy soon finds herself falling for the roguish captain — though their love is separated between the worlds of the living and the dead. Composer Bernard Herrmann provides one of his greatest scores for Joseph L Mankiewicz's charming tear-jerker, which is brought to soaring heights by the chemistry of Tierney and Harrison in the two lead roles.
