Not until three years after the death of her husband Jolly, Kay dares to move back into their former home, persuaded by her new fiancée Rupert. But soon her worst expectations come true, when not only her old memories haunt her, but also Jolly's ghost, who doesn't approve of her new mate. Invisible to anyone but Kay, he tries to prevent the wedding. Written by

The original movie, Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands
, and its source novel were set in Brazil, South America but this American remake set the film in the USA. The scriptwriter Charlie Peters
later wrote Blame It on Rio
which did take place in Brazil and captured Dona Flor's "boudoir farce" elements which had been cut back dramatically in this Hollywood remake. See more

She quoted Jolly as saying that he would "never eat anything that had a face." Later, when Kay, Rupert and Jolly go to a diner for lunch, Jolly orders a cheeseburger. See more
Everything goes. Everything goes. Except that chair!
Kay, that ratty old chair? Don't be silly. Why would you want to keep THAT chair?
DON'T TOUCH THAT CHAIR. My fiancé... was born in it.
Rupert was born in a chair?
Yes, it's the most lovely story. His mother was just sitting there, knitting, listening to the radio - and out popped my fiancé.
Darling, only you can see me. They can't see me.
