Visiting from A/Z; I have never seen the movie of the Ghost and Mrs Muir but do remember watching the TV series of it years ago. It was an interesting plot!

Good luck with the rest of the challenge!

This is one of my most favourite movies! The TV show wasn't this story at all but a contemporary version with only the same character names. It didn't capture the greatness of the film.
