Plot & Details

Stranger in the Night stars Joan Fontaine as a turn-of-the -century widow who moves into a somewhat foreboding seaside estate. Fontaine assumes that her only companion is her housekeeper Elsa Lanchester, but she's wrong: the house is also "inhabited" by the ghost of a handsome sea captain (Michael Wilding). Yes, this is The Ghost and Mrs. Muir in a 60-minute TV slot (the original theatrical film ran nearly twice that length). Tom Conway costars as an amorous author--the same role played by Conway's brother George Sanders in the original Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Originally telecast October 17, 1956, on the TV anthology Twentieth Century Fox Hour.
