Noël Coward apparently fell out with director David Lean over this film adaptation of his 1941 play, but it's hard to see why. It retains all the wit of the original, and Rex Harrison and Margaret Rutherford give great performances. Harrison plays a novelist whose dead first wife is accidentally summoned by a medium (Rutherford) in a seance.
