As producer, Korda consolidated his transatlantic success with this tale of a Scottish ghost shipped to America along with his ancestral pile. Appealing to the romantic notion of British heritage and nobility, the film is a paean to simpler times, with innovative French director René Clair contributing comic touches – delivered by the ever-charismatic Robert Donat, fresh from his success in The 39 Steps.
