Critic Reviews for The Ghost Goes West

All Critics (6)

The silly story, the gross misuse of Clair's peculiar qualities, were forgotten in my admiration for his camera sense. In no other film this year has there been the same feeling of mobility, of visual freedom.

October 3, 2018 | Full Review…

A cheerfully-handled comedy, containing elements of fantasy and satire, about an ancient Scottish castle which is bought up by an American millionaire and shipped to America to be re-erected, complete with eighteenth-century ghost.

Slightly Amusing.

Nearly invisible comedy directed by Rene Clair.
