The Noel Coward/David Lean combination which turned out such dramas as Brief Encounter and This Happy Breed sets its sights on the viewer's funny bone withBlithe SpiritRex Harrison plays a novelist, newly married to straight-laced Constance Cummings. Via a seance, Harrisonaccidentally summons the spirit of his first wife, Kay Hammond. Believing thatHammond wants to ruin his marriage, Harrison enlists the services of local medium Madame Arcati (Margaret Rutherford) to exorciseHammond's spirit. She fails, and in time, Harrison's second wife is killed; now he has two playful spirits on his hands! Technicolor is used throughout Blithe Spirit, with the ghosts' shimmering paleness providing contrast to the plain, everyday colors of Harrison's conservative country home. Blithe Spirit was later transformed into the Broadway musical {+High Spirits}, with the original script bent out of shape to turn the character of Madame Arcati (played by Beatrice Lillie) into the leading role.

  1. Splendid!!! 5 Star Review

    Margaret Rutherford as Madame Ducati in Blithe Spirit - one of Noel Coward's best screenplays and the movie adaptation. High Brow comedy and timeless. Fortunate to have this 'roaring' comedy in my collection.
