Blood and Swash!

I was browsing through Lists of Bests a few weeks ago and started thinking about one of the movies I had checked off as watched - The Ghost and Ms. Muir. I thought about it and realized it was the tv show I'd seen, not the movie, so I did a quick search on the TiVo, found it, and recorded it.

I finally watched it last week and I have to say I can't remember a movie I've enjoyed more in quite some time. Gene Tierney was so strinkingly gorgeous and so high-spirited (pun intended). For a woman at the turn of the century, she was gloriously free and independent. Rex Harrison was also wonderful as the salty Captain Gregg. I couldn't help but laugh everytime Lucy (or Lucia, if you prefer) said blast, much to the shock of those around her.

The movie is both a love story and a fantasy and absolutely a must see. Don't let the fact that it's in black and white put you off - the characters are strong, the writing both witty and touching, and the story wonderful.
