She had a magnificent constitution, and a really wonderful amount of animal spirits.

Indeed, in many respects, she was quite English, and was an excellent example of the fact that we have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language. Her eldest son, christened Washington by his parents in a moment of patriotism, which he never ceased to regret, was a fair-haired, rather good-looking young man, who had qualified himself for American diplomacy by leading the German at the Newport Casino for three successive seasons, and even in London was well known as an excellent dancer.

The Canterville Ghost

Gardenias and the peerage were his only weaknesses. Otherwise he was extremely sensible. Miss Virginia E. Otis was a little girl of fifteen, lithe and lovely as a fawn, and with a fine freedom in her large blue eyes. She was a wonderful Amazon, and had once raced old Lord Bilton on her pony twice round the park, winning by a length and a half, just in front of the Achilles statue, to the huge delight of the young Duke of Cheshire, who proposed for her on the spot, and was sent back to Eton that very night by his guardians, in floods of tears.

After Virginia came the twins, who were usually called "The Star and Stripes," as they were always getting swished.

They were delightful boys, and, with the exception of the worthy Minister, the only true republicans of the family. As Canterville Chase is seven miles from Ascot, the nearest railway station, Mr. Otis had telegraphed for a waggonette to meet them, and they started on their drive in high spirits.

It was a lovely July evening, and the air was delicate with the scent of the pinewoods. And now he's dead.

Thanks to social media, I was recently reminded of one of my favorite movies as a kid, The Canterville Ghost. I read the book when I was younger but really couldn't remember much about it so I decided to curl up with it one afternoon and reread it. At pages, it took me no time at all and I forgot how much I enjoyed the story. Geared toward a younger audience, the story is about a crotchety old ghost who takes great pleasure in scaring the tenants, maids, and visitors.

He'd been quite successful for the years he ambled the halls until an American family moved into the British manor and gave him a run for his money, and ultimately helping him find peace.

It never occurred to me that the book was actually a social satire that mocked Americans for their brash and rude behavior. For years, Sir Simon de Canterville had been horrifying the good and proper Englishmen who resided in his home.

Then the Americans show up and turn the tables on their resident ghost. The younger twins throw pillows at him while the adults treat him with indifference, all of which are infuriating to the ghost.

The only beacon of light in the family is the elder daughter, Virginia, who takes pity on the chained ghost and ultimately helps him. Naturally, I immediately went to find the movie that I so loved as a kid when I finished the book. I had no idea that there were so many different versions. So while I can't find any clips of the one I so dearly loved, I did find this cheesy gem of a video of Alyssa Milano as the adorable Jennifer who is actually Virginia, but we know which name was more popular in And is it just me, or does she remind you of Emma Watson?

Wilde wrote a number of short stories, some particularly for children. This story is aimed at adults, yet children can enjoy it, too, even though a few of the witticisms may go over their heads. It's great satire, and yet has a compelling story and a rather touching ending. One odd thing: I found this mildly distracting and I wonder why they can't be eliminated.Tappan, of West 53d Street, had been a celebrated New York belle, was now a very handsome, middle-aged woman, with fine eyes, and a superb profile.

A few weeks after this, the purchase was concluded, and at the close of the season the Minister and his family went down to Canterville Chase. I don't think it's meant for teenagers. I have come from a modern country, where we have everything that money can buy; and with all our spry young fellows painting the Old World red, and carrying off your best actors and prima-donnas, I reckon that if there were such a thing as a ghost in Europe, we'd have it at home in a very short time in one of our public museums, or on the road as a show.
