Movie Info

John Gielgud stars in this adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic ghost tale. Simon de Canterville (Gielgud) becomes trapped in his family's estate after he runs away instead of engaging in a duel with another man. After he dies, his ghost haunts the mansion; his soul cannot rest until his descendents restore the honor of the family name. A few centuries later, a family moves into the estate and are a bit unnerved to realize that they aren't the only ones living there.
