Harold Lloyd and his new bride move into a new house she's inherited and soon the ghosts start to show up but are the real? Here's one of the better shorts I've seen from Lloyd since there's laughs from start to finish. The various failed suicide attempts at the start are very funny but this got me remembering that all of the comedy greats of the silent era got laughs from suicide attempts. When the film moves to the haunted house more laughs follow including some politically incorrect ones.
