Canterville Ghost movieJoin us to watch the 1944 movie, starring Charles Laughton, Robert Young and Margaret O’Brien, based on our One Book Bernardsville selection, Oscar Wilde’s short story, “The Canterville Ghost.” Afterwards, we’ll chat about the differences between the original story and the movie which was adapted to a contemporaneous, wartime setting. Laughton plays Sir Simon de Canterville, the 17th century British aristocrat who, after proving himself a coward on the field of honor, is doomed to haunt the corridors of Canterville Hall until one of his descendants performs a conspicuous act of bravery.
