Fox screws up packaging, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir

PostMon Nov 27, 2017 5:20 pm

I've been revisiting "The Ghost & Mrs. Muir" (on Hulu) as well as the 60s tv show incarnation with Hope Lange. I love both the Gene Tierney movie and the Lange tv version as both have nautical themes. Ok, what is the deal with this package for the film, what is the major error?

Looks like they recycled a graphics file that was used for How Green Was My Valley?

yeah, 1942 Academy Award Nominee. I had to look to see if they were talking about Gene Tierney, but she wasn't nominated for anything until 1945.

loved the tv show house. I wonder if it is(?was) a real seaside home. West coast or East coast? The back scenery 'does' look like New England which might mean the opening sequences of the show was stock footage. Heaven forbid its a model filmed in front of back projection.

kudos to the producers for making that house appear so romantic with vinage and shrubbery all over it. Don't know how Lucy(in the film early 1900s) and Carolyn(on tv in the late '60s) could afford such a property being meager writers. As of 8/29/2011 the house was for for 3.75 million at Santa Barbara, right in earthquake and fire country. :|

Having seen both the original movie and the tv series (I still watch episodes of it online) I always figured that the widow inherited some money, in addition to be a writer. Being a freelance writer myself, it's a story I strongly identify with.

Oh yes the ghost part too. ;)

I am very thankful for any dvd release!! Having said that packaging sometimes can make one scratch ones head and could be a subject on its own! The packaging from The Women 1939 has some scene from an Anne Bancroft movie used on the back of the packaging! :shock:

Most of us here on Nitrateville, know about it, and shaking of the head is a regular response to these discrepancies. :cry:
