16mm. An extraordinary script - a variation on Oscar Wilde's "The Canterville Ghost "- that would call for the hallucinatory ability to extrapolate from images that Clair demonstrated in the silent period, but with an Alexander Korda production it would be difficult and thus begins his final phase, more "heavy" who, nevertheless, guarantees the enough "esprit" to overcome the heavyweight of production. Very fun.
