Blithe Spirit

Web exclusive!

Talk about an ex that just won’t let go. In David Lean’s Blithe Spirit, a happily married novelist is having trouble with his ex-wife who, oh yeah, just happens to be dead. He’s the only one who can see her, but the trouble she causes is visible to everyone. Lean’s 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 Coward’s witty script. 7 p.m. January 11 and 16. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7515 or visit www.mfah.org/films. $6 to $7.
Sun., Jan. 11, 7 p.m.; Fri., Jan. 16, 7 p.m., 2009
