The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

WACKY READING CHALLENGES discussion on goodreads

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Date: April 1, 2016-October 31, 2016

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) is a romantic fantasy film starring Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison. The director was Joseph L. Mankiewicz. 
It is based on a 1945 novel written by Josephine Leslie under the pseudonym of R. A. Dick. 
In 1945, 20th Century Fox bought the film rights to the novel, which had been published only in the United Kingdom at that time. It was shot entirely in California.

From 1968 to 1970, a TV series titled The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, starring Hope Lange and Edward Mulhare, aired on NBC and then ABC. It had the same premise and main characters as the book and film, but was a sitcom, downplaying the romantic fantasy elements and focusing on broad humor. The time and setting were changed, with the action taking place in a contemporary American coastal town. For the series, Mrs. Muir's
first name was changed from Lucy to Carolyn and the children's names were changed from "Cyril" and "Anna" (in the original novel) to "Jonathan" and "Candace".

The film was released on Blu Ray in 2013 by 20th Century-Fox after being selected in Fox's Voice Your Choice promotion. 
It was previously released on DVD as part of the 20th Century Fox Studio Classics collection.
