About The Canterville Ghost

Sir John Gielgud stars as a 300-year-old cantankerous ghost who finds a new unexpected friend in a modern American teenager in The Canterville Ghost. When an American family comes to England to claim their inherited ancient ancestral castle, the restless spirit of Sir Simon, refusing to share his home, instigates all manner of fiendish tricks intended to scare the new owners off the premises. The daughter of the new owner (Alyssa Milano) has her own objectives for wanting to make trouble for her father (Ted Wass) and new stepmother (Andrea Marcovicci). This updated retelling of the classic tale (first filmed in 1944) is a fantasy full of fun for the whole family. Newly remastered.
