The Canterville Ghost (1974)

A fun bit of comedic ghostliness for Christmas Eve in which David Niven (In a rare tv appearance) plays the titular ghost of the title who finds his stately home overrun by Americans.

Although not in the least bit scary it's still well worth a watch as it does go all English Gothic with it's dark and stormy nights. Niven seems to enjoy the more stately pace of a tv production and Lynn Frederick is just plain gorgeous.

Based on Oscar Wilde's short story, i recommend the Network dvd.
