Trivia

Mildred Natwick (b.1908-1994, 89), an American stage and film actress) performed the role of Madam Arcati (at an age of 33-35) in the original 1941-1943 Broadway "Blithe Spirit" stage play. Natwick reprized her Broadway role as Madam Arcati at Noël Coward's insistence in the 1956 live CBS television production; Mildred, at 47 years old, Noë noted "is wonderful: true, subtle, and hilariously funny without ever being in the least grotesque. She contributed to making the television adaptations a fabulous success". Hollywood film star Lauren Bacall (at the age 31; b.1924-2014, 89) performed Charles' first deceased wife as the ghost Elvira. "Charming, no trouble, she moves beautifully, looks ravishing, and tries like mad, unfortunately, no comedienne". Stage actor Philip Tong (at the age of 58; b.1897-1959, 61) reprized his original Doctor Bradman role from the 1941-1943 Broadway "Blithe Spirit" stage play. See more »
