In Blithe Spirit, Novelist Charles Condomine is seeking background material for a mystery he is working on. He invites eccentric medium Madame Arcati to his home to conduct a seance. During the seance Charles, his wife Ruth and their guests, George and Violet barely restrain themselves from laughing, Madame Arcati performs peculiar rituals and goes into a trance. Charles then hears the voice of his dead first wife, Elvira. When he discovers that the others cannot hear her, he passes off his odd behavior as a joke. When Arcati recovers, she is certain that something extraordinary has occurred, but everyone denies it.
After Madame Arcati and the Bradmans have left, Charles is unable to convince Ruth that he was not joking. After Ruth retires for the night, Elvira becomes visible, but only to Charles.
