    What a good film this is. While browsing through, I had decided some of my hundreds of old vhs tapes needed a good dusting, I came across my copy of this very film. I love this movie.
    Robert Donat at his best, and Marlene Dietrich looking meltingly lovely. Something she didn't do very often. The cameraman was obviously great at his job. That said, she was a good actress.
    And we know Robert Donat was. A very enjoyable couple or so hours.

    Ooh, yes, I love this film!!

    Robert Donat is my absolutely favourite actor of all time and this is such a lovely understated film.

    I loved him in 'The Ghost Goes West' and also the adorable 'Mr Chips'!!

    I have just got my husband to tranfer it to disk from a very tatty old video. it is a great film, with romance in bucket loads. The ghost goes west. That's the one were Americans buy a castle, then take it lock-stock-and barrel back to the states, ghost and all. Am I right? I know goodbye Mr chips. I have all three versions. Robert donat, Peter O'Toole and Martin Clunes. Great Stuff. Robert Donat was a greatly understated actor. He had asthma so bad it curtailed his career in the end. I believe that was one of the main causes of his early death. What a waste.
