Talk about an ex that just wont let go. In David Leans Blithe Spirit, a happily married novelist is having trouble with his ex-wife who, oh yeah, just happens to be dead. Hes the only one who can see her, but the trouble she causes is visible to everyone. Leans first comedy, Blithe Spirit stars Rex Harrison as the harried husband. Along with Constance Cummings as Ruth, his current wife, and Kay Hammond as Elvira, his ex- and very dead wife, Harrison makes brilliant use of Noël Cowards witty script. 7 p.m. January 11 and 16.
