The Smiling Ghost

Added to your love list
0 Love It
Very much the Cat and the Canary formula, set in an old dark house with the wisecracks flying and the secret panels flapping, while Willie Best provides his usual study in knock-kneed terror. Cheaply made but moderately amusing/exciting, thanks largely to the accomplished cast, with Smith as the heiress whose three previous fianc├ęs have come to grisly grief, Morris as the young man hired for bait, Hale as the bumbling detective, and Marshall as the intrepid girl reporter determined to fathom the mystery.

i remeber watching this films about 20-25 years ago and found it really funny instead of scary. willie best was fantastic. this is my mums favourite film and have been trying hard for years to get her a copy, so if any one knows how please let me no. thanks
