A Gallery of Ghostly Tales
October 8 Ghost (1990) 2 hrs 7 min. at Mary J Benson Branch
Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) is a banker, Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) is an artist, and the two are madly in love. Sam is murdered by friend and corrupt business partner Carl Bruner (Tony Goldwyn) over a shady business deal, and left to roam the Earth as a powerless spirit. When he learns of Carl’s betrayal, Sam must seek the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) to set things right and protect Molly from Carl and his goons.
Won 2 Oscars. Patrick Swayze said that the pottery scene was the sexiest thing he had ever done on film. The horrific sounds made by the “dark shadows” are baby cries played backwards, very slowly.
