Blithe Spirit 1945 DVD Color (Region 1 - Playable in North America - The US, Canada, Mexico, etc.)
Starring: Rex Harrison, Constance Cummings, Kay Hammond, Margaret Rutherford. Written by David Lean, Ronald Neame and Anthony Havelock-Allan. Based on the hit play by Noel Coward. Directed by David Lean.
Noel Coward's favourite play, Blithe Spirit, was certainly a departure for David Lean, best known at the time for adapting Dickens. While it's the director's only comedy, the result is a delightful gem. Rex Harrison is an acerbic author haunted by the ghost of first wife Elvira (Kay Hammond), who tries to seduce him all over again. This throws his second wife (Constance Cummings) into a panic, second-guessing her lack of passion. It's a celestial sex romp that hasn't lost its bite. Margaret Rutherford, as always, steals the show as the sardonic medium.
"Elvira is the kind of gal who can turn an evening into a night you'll never forget!"
