time is irrelevant

the ghost & mrs muir 3The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) was released a year before I was born and was one of Holly’s favorite films. I was (and am) enthralled by its ideal of beauty as personified by heroine Gene Tierney.

I have told you this before–and you can put this off to an over-active imagination if you wish–but sometimes when I watch this movie, I can feel Holly’s numinous presence. I prefer to think such “visitations” are real, but it has been twenty years since she died, and I am becoming an eccentric old man who believes that with the passage of the years, time is irrelevant where love is concerned.
