The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
DIRECTOR: JOSEPH L. MANKIEWICZ
CAST: GENE TIERNEY, REX HARRISON, GEORGE SANDERS, EDNA BEST
One of Mankiewicz’s supreme achievements and a high watermark of Hollywood romanticism, swept along by a yearning, rueful, rich Bernard Herrmann score, starring a perfectly matched Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney in the title roles, and featuring flawless supporting work from Natalie Wood, Edna Best, and George Sanders, as a graceful, mannerly, and ultimately empty lover. A wistful and wise work that has lost none of its ability to charm.
