Novelist Charles Condomine enlists Madam Arcat, a most delighfully eccentric character, to hold a seance at his home, hoping to raise some ideas for a new book.  Instead, she raises the ghost of his former wife, Elvira, who is determined to wreak havoc (and succeeds) on Charles' current marriage to Ruth."
