Ellen Chan's Career Peak in Pretty Ghost (1991)
21 June 2001 | by See all my reviews



This movie was at the peak of Ellen Chan's career. Ellen acted as a beautiful office lady and all men in the office were going after her. She was wearing those black high heels, tight black skirt and red office blazer with long curly hair. Everybody just go crazy over her. Then there was this ghost acted by Rosemuan Kwan. How can they name this movie Pretty Ghost, they should have name it `Pretty Office Girl!'. Well at the end, Ellen did the right thing by not risking her life to save this guy. Smart girl.
