Happy Saturday dolls!! I hope you have a great weekend! Here we are again with a movie to enjoy. This one I happened to watch without knowing what it was. It just came on the tv one Saturday afternoon and I had never heard of it, I actually missed the beginning, but watched it any ways and enjoyed it completely. It has that old charm to it that makes you smile. The way they perceived the look of a ghost is quite comical with the technicolour green make-up and clothes. The characters will remind you of someone you know or have met at one point in life. I ended up finding it at the store really cheap and bought it to see it from the start & wasn't disappointed. I'm sure you won't be either. Enjoy & have a darling weekend!
Seeking material for his fictional exposé of a criminal psychic, novelist Charles Condomine (Harrison) invites eccentric medium Madame Arcati (Rutherford) to his home in Lympne, Kent, to conduct a séance. As Charles, his wife of five years, Ruth (Cummings), and their guests the Bradmans restrain their laughter, Madame Arcati performs peculiar rituals and speaks with a propensity for clichés. Upon its conclusion, Arcati obviously is concerned about an unexpected turn the session has taken, although the author and his guests are dubious anything extraordinary occurred.
Unknown to everyone, Madame Arcati has accidentally summoned the spirit of Charles' first wife Elvira (Hammond) during the séance, whose voice Charles can now hear, and Arcati faints during her trance. After Madame Arcati and the Bradmans have left, and Ruth has retired for the night, Elvira takes visual form. Charles, who is the only person capable of seeing Elvira, becomes both dismayed and amused by her sudden and unexpected presence. Complications ensue when Ruth becomes aware of the presence of the ghost; Elvira behaves as a poltergeist.
