This is a classic story in true Oscar Wilde wit and flair. It's both
haunting and funny. It's a fairy tale for all ages. In this story a
young American girl helps to free the tormented spirit that haunts an
old English castle. It's very well written and a beautiful tale for all
ages. It's too bad this wasn't the best adaptation.
The best adaptation of The Canterville ghost, in my opinion, has to be the version with Patrick Stewart as the ghost, it was made for television in 1996. Though set in the 1990s it's very true to the book. The worst adaptation of the Canterville ghost, in my opinion, is the version set in 1944. It had been turned into blatant war propaganda and was almost unrecognizable, it's plot having nearly nothing at all to do with the original story by Oscar Wilde, which is a true classic.
I was given this film as a gift from a friend who knows that i am a huge
Barry Van Dyke fan, and i have to say that both myself and my little girl
sat and watched it, and we really enjoyed it, but with it being only 56
minutes long it was not enough time to get into the plot, just as you were
starting to enjoy it, it suddenly ended, more time was
But above all, i have to say i throughly enjoyed it, and have watched it a staggering 23 times since i first had it.
