Trivia There have been many filmed adaptations of Noël Coward's play, including Blithe Spirit (1956) in which writer Noël Coward himself plays the lead role alongside Claudette Colbert and Lauren Bacall, but the most popular version is Blithe Spirit (1945) starring Rex Harrison, Constance Cummings, Margaret Rutherford and Kay Hammond and directed by David Lean.
