The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947)

May 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Joseph Mankiewicz, 1947
104 minutes

Defying her conventional in-laws, a young widow (Gene Tierney) leaves London with her daughter and moves away for a quieter life in a secluded seaside cottage. She discovers the ghost of the dead former owner, a sea captain (Rex Harrison), is haunting the house, but gathers the courage to stand up to him, and the woman and ghost become friends. Faced with dwindling means of support, Lucy agrees to the captain’s challenge to write his colorful life story.

“My Favorite Films” features tales of romance, humor, suspense, satire, and heroism with films since 1945. This series may hold special memories for you—no matter how many times you see them, they continue to draw you in. While many of these films are available through streaming, it’s always more fun to see them in the theater.

Make a day of it at the Modern and include extra time to visit the galleries and our special exhibitions. Enjoy lunch in Café Modern and then settle in for an afternoon screening, or plan for a coffee break afterwards with fellow film enthusiasts.

Screenings are most Wednesdays at 2 pm in the Modern’s auditorium. Tickets are $5 (FREE for Modern members), available at the museum’s admission desk. Click here to purchase tickets online.

This screening features special guest host Ryan Bijan, Creative Director of Cowtown Movie Classics, in discussion with Film Historian and Producer Daniel Marino.

A north Texas-based film club that celebrates vintage and cult cinema, Cowtown Movie Classics makes classic films available to the community with the proper historical context. Follow Cowtown Music Classics on FacebookInstagram, and Youtube.
