    Sorry previous reviewer David Fowler, but I prefer my ghost stories to be, well, SCARY and not "kind and gentle" standard British drawing room fare, as this slow moving and pallid film is. I could also do without, as previous reviewer cat riddle mentioned, Margaret Lockwood's crappy acting (always more shocking when emanating from a Brit) as well as James Mason's not very original or interesting Nigel Bruce by way of C. Aubrey Smith imitation. I mean, halfway through you expect Lassie to deposit a goddamn crumpet at his hearty but curmudgeonly feet. Mason is simply too great an actor for this ersatz stuff. So let's give it a C. P.S. What a dumb title! Surprised Virginia Woolf's estate didn't sue.

    Could have been a little shorter based on content of the storyline; a good ghost tale though. Girl possessed by former girl's spirit who'd suffered a fateful love and many injustices. Present girl possessed by former, on death's bed and saved at the last minute by the only one who could have saved her; alas, he had to be dead to do it! This really needs remade. There's lots of room to enhance this story. James Mason was indeed good playing a jovial role instead of his darker/harder roles. Enjoyed.

    The movie is best watched on a rainy morning with a cup of tea. In addition to the acting and story, I enjoyed all of the costumes and scenery and the clever dialogue. I particularly like the way society at the time was portrayed. Very enjoyable little film.

    I enjoyed this film because it showed a tender side to James Mason, who is rather sinister in most of his roles.It was hampered by the actress who was "possessed" way too melodramatic for the character.

    This is a lovely little English film. The storyline is explained elsewhere, but I enjoyed it mostly because of the beautiful costumes and music. I love the poetic beauty of the early English language, carried out beautifully by an outstanding cast. This movie is worth getting up at 6 a.m. to see! I love watching movies of this type in the early hours of the day when I know I won't be interrupted. Hope old movie fans will all get a chance to view it.

    A wonderful, gentle ghost tale. Not scary in the least, but not really meant to be. It is, however, filled with charm, beauty, and palpable atmosphere. Excellent performances from Mason, Mullen, and Lockwood add greatly to the sweet, romantic, melancholy spell it weaves. The great Ernest Thesiger has a small, but very important cameo. An exquisite example of the 40's British film form, and one of the most beautiful ghost stories on film.
