The whimsical Oscar Wilde fantasy yarn The Canterville Ghost is updated to WW2 in this economical but attractively produced MGM filmization. Charles Laughton plays Sir Simon de Canterville, a feckless 17th century British aristocrat who, after proving himself a coward on the field of honor, is walled up alive in his own castle by his unforgiving father (Reginald Owen). Sir Simon's ghost is doomed to haunt the corridors of Canterville Hall until one of his descendants performs a conspicuous act

...a pleasant little fantasy, as well as a lighthearted bit of World War II propaganda.
MGM comedy-fantasy combined with WWII theme is classic.
Delicious fantasy with splendid performances by O'Brien, Young, and Laughton.
Sweet wartime comedy
