ROBERT DONAT IS ONE OF THOSE HANDFUL OF ACTORS WHOM HAS NEVER MADE A BAD MOVIE. THIS IS A VERY FUN FILM WITH A TERRIFIC CAST. EUGENE PALLETTE IS EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD. HE MANAGES TO EVEN STEAL SCENES AWAY FROM DONAT!

good story well crafted

It's hard to believe that this contrived effort was the highest grossing film in the UK in the year of its release, and that Robert Donat chose this material to follow his hit The 39 Steps. It's not so difficult to get how the film dropped off the radar and isn't held in as high esteem as some of Donat's other films.

Hehehe. I haven't seen this since I was a kid. American's had such odd ideas about the Scots. Silly fun.

A decent Robert Donat vehicle that is perhaps most valuable for its exploration of the crass nature of American culture, or more precisely, the complete misunderstanding and homogenization of foreign cultures at the hands of Americans - and for that matter, it's probably more of a comment about Hollywood than anything. It's not a great film (despite a few quality moments, mostly to do with the ghost), but it's more probing than contemporaneous films of similar ilk.

Rolig film om ett spöke som följer med ett skotskt slott när det flyttas till Florida. Kul historia och fina skådisar, men bedrövlig dvd-överföring.

Another fantasy by Clair. Original and fun- just wish the copy I watched had better sound on it.

Lively, original and quite funny, this frothy comedy about a Scottish castle who's ghost is transplanted to America when its castle is moved stone-by-stone to Florida has a whimsical quality and includes some of the best talent of Hollywood's golden age notably director Rene Clair and quietly elegant Robert Donat.

my all time favourite black and white movie. set in scotland for the first part of the movie sets up the story. a scottish ancestor who is not allowed into heaven until he reclaims honour to the Glourie name. the film takes you through a web of love, respect and honesty. Another fantastic Robert Donat film
