When Sir Simon de Canterville (Charles Laughton) flees a joust in fear and retreats to the family castle, his father traps Simon and curses him to haunt the estate until a descendent restores the family honor with an act of bravery. Hundreds of years later, Cuffy Williams (Robert Young), an American soldier stationed at the castle, discovers from young Lady Jessica (Margaret O'Brien) that he is a relative.

Audience Reviews for The Canterville Ghost

  • Jul 18, 2007
    In a great family oriented ghost story the three principals, Charles Laughton, Margaret O'Brien and Robert Young, all uphold their part in this very well-rounded tale like the legs of a three-legged stool. A coward is cursed to unrest for eternity unless a blood kin relative can redeem him. Should be easy, right? A justified family classic for good reason.
