Enjoyable, despite technical inadequacies.

Alas! If this old charmer has been on your "once seen never forgotten' list, and you hope that remastering will bring it to you in improved quality, then you'll be disappointed. I didn't expect anything could be done to improve the stagey, static camera work, but I had hoped for improvement in the sound track. Ah, well, if you can get past these inadequacies, there is much to enjoy. It has an engaging story-line with similarities to Oscar Wilde's "The Canterville Ghost". René Clair, Alexander Korda and Mischa Spoliansky contribute in various ways, and Robert Donat in kilts, sporrans, ghillies, cloaks and broached berets makes a credible Scot and an endearing, re-locating ghost.
