An American family buys an old English castle with all the furnishings, ... including its ghost. At first they don't believe it exists but then, when the super-natural being appears to the family, they treat him with indifference and the terrible twins even play nasty tricks on him. The only person who respects him is Virginia, who manages to talk to him and sets him free from his long-standing curse.
In this amusing story, Oscar Wilde portrays the cultural clash between a 16thcentury traditional English ghost and a modern (end of 19th century), stereotyped American family.
A comic-strip version accompanied by inserts on the 'existence' of ghosts in famous castles, literature and cinema.
