Book Vs Movie: "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" (1947)

Book Vs Movie: “The Ghost & Mrs. Muir” (1947) A romantic love story between a hot-headed former sailor and a beautiful widow  The Margos are not afraid to take on a spooky story from time to time and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir features everything from a cranky specter to a haunted seaside mansion and a lovely widow and young mother who is seeking her independence. Even though people have to yell at her to make it happen!   Based on the novella by R.A. Dick (an Irish woman who preferred to use a gender-neutral nom de plume) the story of angelic Lucy Muir whose husband left her with two (in the novel) kids and a big amount of debt after his death has been transfixing audiences for decades mainly due to the charms of film leads Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison.   The 1945 novel was bought by 20th Century Fox as a project for famed director Joseph L. Mankowitz who decided to lean out the story and let his actors (and locations) shine. It was a hit in 1947 with audiences and critics (it’s 100% on Rotten Tomatoes!)  So between book & movie--which did we like better? Have a listen!  In this ep the Margos discuss: The little known life of author Josephine Leslie The changes between the original story and the film The cast: Gene Tierney (Lucy Muir,) Rex Harrison (Captain Daniel Gregg,) George Sanders (Miles Fairley,) Edna Best (Martha Huggins,) and Natalie Wood (Anna Muir.)  Clips used: The Ghost and Mrs. Muir  trailer  The Captain proposes a book The 1968 TV show Closing music by Bernard Herrmann Join our Patreon page to help support the show!  Book Vs.
