The role requires the Ghost to be a Shakespearean and Stewart is a natural as the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, and Elizabethan Lord caught in limbo, ever regretting the involuntary manslaughter of his beloved.
Of course, the ghost encounters a modern American tenant of his manor. The daughter and her brothers discover that Sir Simon is more bluster than horror and set out to lift the curse.
Good supporting cast overcomes so-so production values. Good on-site locale helps.
A great follow-on to this DVD would be the classic 1930's campy drama 'The Ghost Goes West,' where a US grocery magnate buys a Scottish castle--with ghost, of course.
This version of THE CANTERVILLE GHOST has just the right blend of wit, romance, and pathos. Go for it!
"Canterville Ghost" is a wonderful tale. Sure, it can be a bit campy in the telling, but it is an ageless story of love and anger, loss and redemption. This particular version captures equally the humor and the angst of Wild's story. Patrick Stewart brings Sir Simon to life, while anyone who suffered the growing pains of the teenage years or had siblings will recognize a bit of themselves in Neve Campbell's Ginny. It is well worth 92 minutes of your time.
