Rating: 4/5 -- Charming comedy fantasy from the great Rene Clair.

Clair's first English film is an odd charmer about a matchmaking ghost. When an American woman inherits a Scottish castle and decides to move it-lock, stock and barrel-to Florida, a 200 year old ghost goes along for the ride. Written by Robert E. Sherwood and now available in a digitally remastered version to make the boos spookier and the laughs kookier.
