Despite the rental agent trying to dissuade her, Lucy decides to rent Gull Cottage at Whitecliff-by-the-Sea. She learns first hand before she makes the decision the rental agent’s hesitance is because the cottage is haunted, supposedly by its now deceased former owner, seaman Captain Daniel Gregg. After she moves in, she does meet the spirit of Captain Gregg face-to-face. Because she refuses to be scared away by his presence, the two come to an understanding, including that he will not make his presence known to Anna. As time progresses, the two develop a friendship and a bond. Despite his statements to her that she needs to live her life including finding another husband, Daniel seems not to approve of any of the men that enter her life, including the most serious, children’s author Miles Fairley. Because of his feelings for her, Daniel eventually has to decide if being a part of her life is more a benefit or hindrance to her in carrying on with the living, regardless of perhaps not being able to carry out his initial goal of realizing his vision for Gull Cottage if he leaves.
Plot: In 1900, strong-willed widow Lucy Muir goes to live in Gull Cottage by the British seaside, even though it appears to be haunted. On her very first night she meets the ghost of the crusty former owner, Captain Gregg—and refuses to be scared off. They eventually become friends and allies, after Lucy gets used to the idea of a man’s ghost haunting her bedroom.

Perhaps the greatest love story of all time
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir was a very original story; The authoress, Josephine Aimee Leslie Campbell was the daughter of a sea captain. The study of the two main characters is very interesting; you have a rather gruff sea captain, who has led a man’s life and is proud of it. He makes no excuses for himself; he is a man who takes responsibility for his actions. He is an honest man. Marriage is not for him- although he has two demanding mistresses; his ship and the sea. Mrs. Muir is a true product of her time; she has done what society expects of her; she has married, and bore a child. Her husband is a respected man. She has fulfilled her obligation. We see that Mrs. Muir is more than an average fin de siecle woman. She is deeper; we can see from her brief description of the late Mr. Muir that he was mediocre. From here the love story begins; we see the mutual respect and admiration that Captain Gregg and Mrs. Muir have for eachother.The love is pure and true,on a higher plane; not hindered or comprimised by sexual intimacy.
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is a love story that like its characters transcends time.
A Love To Last Through Time
This is a film I can’t see too many times – I probably watched it 3 times the week the DVD came out – it only gets better. Gene Tierney wasn’t the greatest actress in the world, but she was a very competent and sincere one, as well as beautiful, and she had the great good luck to be in excellent films such as this and THE RAZOR’S EDGE, LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN and, of course, LAURA. She and “Sexy Rexy” (Rex Harrison) are a perfect match in this film, although only through her death are they finally able to – to, um, to do whatever it is ghosts in love do! When anyone’s confused about what happened to Old Rose at the end of James Cameron’s TITANIC, this is the film I refer them to – the final scene of MRS. MUIR never fails to get my tear-ducts going. There really isn’t anything I don’t like about this film – Bernard Herrmann’s haunting score, the photography, wonderful performances.. .and a love to last through time, the kind we’d all like to believe is possible. . .
