The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages. The ingenious plot tells how novelist Charles Condomine invites into his placid country home an eccentric, breezy lady medium in order to learn the language of the occult. Little does Charles or his lovely second wife, Ruth, dream that the seance staged by the medium will summon back Charles' first wife, now "passed over" for seven years. But the lady from beyond, still handsome, still mischievous, appears and torments Charles by reminding him of their days and nights together. Only Charles can see or hear her. A floating vase, handed to her out of thin air, finally convinces Ruth that Charles is not losing his mind that his first wife is indeed in the room. The first wife has a ghostly plot in mind: if she can get Charles into an automobile accident and make a ghost of him, life in the spirit world will have more appeal for her. Mistakes occur, however, and it is Ruth who takes the fatal automobile ride and passes on only to return with the first wife to plague the utterly bewildered astral bigamist! How Charles manages to extricate himself from these two very blithe spirits makes an hilarious conclusion to this very unusual farce. Hilariously funny, brilliant, clever and about as cockeyed as a play can be.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.
