Question: Who played the ghost in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir? — Sue H., Redmond, Wash.

Televisionary: That was Edward Mulhare playing the ghostly Capt. Daniel Gregg opposite Hope Lange's Mrs. Muir on the comedy, which ran on NBC for a year beginning in September 1968, then jumped to ABC for another year. (Those roles were originally filled by Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney in the movie version, which was released in 1947.)

If you're a regular small-screen fan, Sue (and I assume you are since you read the column), you may remember the late Mr. Mulhare as the dashing Devon Miles on Knight Rider.

Movie-wise, the actor's more notable work was done in movies like Von Ryan's Express and Our Man Flint.
