The Ghosts of Berkeley Square Details


Firmly in the fantasy groove previously plowed by such films as [[Feature~V154402~The Canterville Ghost~thecantervilleghost]] and [[Feature~V50036~The Time of Their Lives~thetimeoftheirlives]] is the 1947 British comedy The Ghosts of Berkeley Square. [[Performer~P50731~Robert Morley~robertmorley]] and [[Performer~P1275~Felix Aylmer~felixaylmer]] play a pair of fatuous Colonel Blimp military types, whose efforts to shorten the war results only in getting the both of them killed. Summoned to a Heavenly court, Morley and Aylmer incur the wrath of Queen Anne. She orders them to haunt a mansion until they can prove themselves worthy of entering the Pearly Gates. For a film that practically no one has ever heard of, Ghosts of Berkeley Square is an embarrassment of riches in the casting department: among the British favorites appearing in the film are [[Performer~P33986~Martita Hunt~martitahunt]], A.E. Mathews, [[Performer~P31313~James Hayter~jameshayter]], [[Performer~P70488~Ernst Thesiger~ernstthesiger]], and [[Performer~P34232~Wilfred Hyde-White~wilfridhydewhite]]. The film was based on the novel [[Feature~V127796~No Nightingales~nightingales]] by [[Performer~P174325~Caryl Brahms~carylbrahms]] and [[Performer~P176706~S.J. Simon~sjsimon]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
