David Lean United Kingdom, 1945

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Blithe Spirit

Pleasant, if a little too gin-and-soda in its tart repartee and all-too-knowingly sparkling dialogue. Not much of a film - Lean seems rather hidebound behind those fabled French doors - and it’s too often cast in a ghastly green pall for the ghostly apparitions. However it’s performed with a certain pinched flair and passes the time amicably enough.
