Adapted from a play by Noel Coward, Charles and his second wife Constance, are haunted by the ghost of his first wife, Elvira. Medium Madame Arcati tries to help things out by contacting the ghost. Interesting change in social habits. Rex Harrison, at lunch, in his upper middle class family; they always dressed for dinner; has a large, screw-top, bottle of beer on the table, something that now would be uncommon. He, Rex, upon the death of his wife sports two black armbands, generally one, or more likely a diamond, or lozenge shaped patch was worn on the left arm, but two I've never seen.
Greg says: "Possibly the setting of this film is Goldenhurst Farm in Kent, TN25 7BY, because it was the home of Noel Coward.
Noel Coward: A Biography By Philip Hoare, Page 354: "Clearly the setting is Goldenhurst, or its symbolic equivalent; a signpost announces 'Ashford 8 miles', and the telephone has an Ashford number."
However, I don't think it was filmed in Kent, because... according to IMDb it was filmed in Denham, Buckinghamshire: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038363/locations. Confirmed by pictures by002n, by002an, by002bn and by002cn below.
