The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Synopsis: At the beginning of the twentieth century, Mrs. Edwin Muir - Lucy - widowed for one year, decides to move out of her controlling in-law's home in London to the English seaside with her adolescent daughter Anna and their long devoted maid Martha. Despite the rental agent trying to dissuade her, Lucy decides to rent Gull Cottage at Whitecliff-by-the-Sea. She learns first hand before she makes the decision the rental agent's hesitance is because the cottage is haunted, supposedly by its now deceased former owner, seaman Captain Daniel Gregg. After she moves in, she does meet the spirit of Captain Gregg face-to-face. Because she refuses to be scared away by his presence, the two come to an understanding, including that he will not make his presence known to Anna. As time progresses, the two develop a friendship and a bond. Despite his statements to her that she needs to live her life including finding another husband, Daniel seems not to approve of any of the men that enter her life, inclu

you may be sure there is

nothing wrong with the drains.

Then why shouldn't it suit me?

My dear young lady, you must

allow me to be the judge of that.

Now where were we?

Oh, yes. Labernum Mount.

Beautifully planted,

short walk from--

But if I'm going to

live in the house...

I should be the judge.

You'll only waste your time.

But it's my time.

I believe there's another

house agency in Whitecliff.

Perhaps they have

Gull Cottage listed, too.

Very well, madam,

if you insist.

I shall drive you to Gull Cottage

in my motorcar.

That's very good of you,

Mr. Coombe.

Uh, Mrs. Muir.

It's only a short drive

to Labernum Mount.

But I want to see the inside.

The inside?

Of course.

What on earth's the matter?

Very well.

If you insist.

Terribly dusty.

The house has been empty

for nearly four years.

Oh.

Office is back there.

Living on the right.

Dining off the living.

Oh.

Of course.

It's a painting.

I thought for a moment...

Who is it?

The, uh, former owner,

a Captain Gregg.

A sea captain.

That explains the scheme

of decoration, doesn't it?

Which is in frightful taste.

Oh, I don't agree with you.

It's really a lovely room...

and most of the furniture

will do as it is.

Mrs. Muir, I must beg of you

not to be so precipitous.

I assure you this house

will not suit you at all.

Oh, but it does.

It suits me perfectly.

What a hideous tree.

What kind of a tree is it?

I believe it is called

a monkey puzzle tree.

Why?

Because it defies the efforts

of monkeys to climb it, presumably.

Why, it ruins the view.

I'll have it chopped down.

Did you say something,

Mr. Coombe?

No, I did not.

Well, I think I'd better

see the rest of it.

As you wish, Mrs. Muir.

What on earth?

What, Mrs. Muir?

That table. I thought you said

no one had been here.
