When widow Carolyn Muir moves her two children to Gull Cottage in the charming seaside town of Schooner Bay, she didnGÇÖt expect her newly rented home to be owner-occupied GÇô especially by a ghost whose bad moods can affect the weather. The irascible, spectre is Captain Gregg GÇô an old seadog who has little time, nor tolerance for others invading his abode. He quickly demands the justifiably shocked Mrs. Muir pack her bags and disembark with her crew in tow. Most people would run screaming, but Captain Gregg has met his match in the equally stubborn Carolyn Muir, a quality he soon comes to admire, who refuses to leave. Eventually he begins to soften; the two declare a truce, and the Captain begins to develop a ghostly affection for the lovely Mrs. Muir. Based on the classic 1947 film, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir television series became a warm favourite with viewers thanks to its charming balance of magical comedy (along the lines of Bewitched and I Dream Of Jeannie), and the impossible romance between the Captain and Mrs. Muir.
