  • An underrated gem

    A fun, charming movie by the great Rene Clair(I Married a Witch, Under the Roofs of Paris) starring the incomparable Robert Donat as a 18th century aristocrat who is doomed to wander his family castle and his 20th century ancestor. Complications ensue when the castle is sold to a vulger American banker(Eugene Pallette at his gravelly voiced best) who transports it lock, stock and ghost back to California. A bit creaky by today's standards but a has a sweetness leavened by a light satiric touch that is enjoyable to watch.

    NO BELLY LAUGHS BUT STILL A COMEDY FOR THE FAMILY OF ALL AGES. THERE'S A LOVE INTEREST BETWEEN TWO FAMILIES, THE GHOSTS AND CASTLE OWNERS, WITH A SMALL CATCH WHICH IS OVERCOME AT THE END OF THE PICTURE.

  • The Ghost Goes West -- great film!

  • Rene Clair goes Scottish (and American)

    This obscure movie was directed by Rene Clair, whose unique vision can be seen in such 1930s French classics as "A nous la Liberte" and "Le Million" (both released on Criterion DVD, I believe). This movie stars Robert Donat playing a dual role: an old Scottish ghost doomed to haunt his castle until he finds the last surviving member of a rival clan, and his descendant, who sells the castle to rich Americans. The Americans ship it brick by brick to Florida and hijinks ensue. Not the most fascinating or funny film out there, and not as original as Rene Clair's French films. However, it is entertaining enough and has a great lead in Donat.
